Cadet Ambassador Program Launches

Cal Maritime's cadets are representative of what the University stands for and what makes it unique. Now, a select group of students are being given an opportunity to represent the school in a whole new way. 

The new Cadet Ambassador Program provides students with an opportunity to develop their leadership skills through interactions with industry, alumni, donors, and elected officials. The program encompasses, donor visits, travel, the beginnings of a new student alumni program, volunteerism, event participation and the opportunity for meeting and networking with executives in the maritime and related industries. 

"Our students will have an opportunity for mentoring and experience in executive-level interactions that lead to networking and the development of necessary communication skills," said Vice President for University Advancement Beverly Byl. "In many cases, these experiences will enhance their résumés and provide direct professional opportunities." 

The program has a core group of 30 cadets, plus five freshman apprentices who are identified at the start of their second semester on campus. Participants in the program will receive campus stewardship and community service credit.

Professor Chairs Review Panel for Bay Delta Conservation Plan

Dr. Alexander Parker (Department of Sciences and Mathematics) served as the Chair of the external review panel for the Effects Analysis of California’s Bay Delta Conservation Plan.  The 20,000 page plan, often referred to as “the Delta Tunnels” proposes a $26 billion public work to improve California’s water conveyance system in the San Francisco Bay Delta.  

The Plan supports California’s Delta Reform Act of 2009 priority of “two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem.”  

The panel was tasked with evaluating the scientific methods and uncertainties that link the proposed water conveyance and habitat restoration actions.  Drafting the BDCP Effects Analysis has taken seven years and $250 million.  

2014 Graduate Joining University of Alaska Ice Breaker Crew

Since graduation in April, alumnus Kevin Reinhardt (MET, minor marine science class of 2014) has been working as an engineer and scientific research technician aboard US oceanographic research vessels.  After graduation Kevin completed a National Science Foundation-sponsored Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) internship sailing with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution aboard the R/V KNORR.  Kevin is now joining the University of Alaska’s R/V Sikuliaq, an Ice Breaker, for its maiden scientific voyage.  "The opportunities provided by Cal Maritime – access to research facilities, unique extracurricular activities, and the ability to specialize in marine science – are what made all the difference,” said Reinhardt.  “You can get an engineering degree anywhere, but Cal Maritime was the only place that could have set me up for where I am now.”
