Katharine Owens, associate professor in the department of Politics, Economics, and International Studies and director of University Interdisciplinary Studies (formerly AUC), published this month in the Marine Pollution Bulletin.

The article details the results of the Shore to State House project, funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. In the course taught in 2016, students collected and cataloged marine debris, then shared the results with the environmental committee of the Connecticut General Assembly. The article is available online: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0025326X17308056
