Governance

The COAST governance s​tructure​ calls for Faculty and Administrative Representatives from each campus and marine consortia. These Campus Representatives form the official decision-making body for COAST. They have official voting privileges on behalf of their campus and are responsible for communicating with campus faculty and administrators. The COAST Executive Committee is elected from the Campus Representatives and works closely with the Staff to oversee daily operations. Additionally, there is a Presidents’ Council, ap​pointed by the Chancellor and led by Dr. Eduardo Ochoa (CSUMB). COAST's activities are guided by its Strategic Plan​.
