Dear Molloy College and Long Island Coastal Communities, Welcome to our inaugural edition of the CERCOM at Molloy College Newsletter, The Coastal Monitor. CERCOM was made possible by the vision of Molloy College President, Dr. Drew Bogner. Dr. Bogner provided the leadership to develop a new science initiative designed not only to serve our future students, but to enhance their abilities to handle and solve some of the most perplexing, environmental problems facing Long Island and our global society as we approach 2020.
I am honored to be the Director of CERCOM and I hope you will provide feedback regarding CERCOM's operation, research, academic support, monitoring efforts, and mission, as a monitoring field station support STEM Sciences at Molloy College. If you have any questions, or would like to take part as a "citizen scientist", contact my office at 516.323.3594/3591 or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
John T. Tanacredi, Ph.D.
