The Ocean Studies Institute was created in 1972 to coordinate teaching, research and community service in ocean studies on member campuses. Members include Dominguez Hills, Fullerton, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Northridge, Pomona, San Bernardino, and San Marcos. The Institute does not offer degrees, but it serves as an administrative liaison to facilitate degree programs offered on member campuses.

The Institute operates a 76.foot research vessel for teaching and research purposes, obtains research grants and contracts, performs research, and is responsible for curriculum planning and facilities acquisition. Presently the Institute serves over 35 departments across eight campuses.

The courses and research in which the Institute is actively engaged reflect the broad applied approach of interdisciplinary, mission.oriented projects in harbors and the coastal zone.
