The Thalassic Society is mutually run by graduate students in the Department of Oceanography. All Oceanography students are automatically members of the society and many of the activities are open to anyone who is oceanography related (including faculty, staff, family, and friends). No university student may be denied membership on the basis of race, creed, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, parental status, disability, or the inability to pay dues. Membership is open to all individuals wishing to participate. For more information contact the Thalassic Society.
The objectives of the society are to promote fellowship among the different disciplines within oceanography, enhance the experience of oceanography students through educational and extracurricular activities, and increase awareness of oceanography in the community at large. Current activities to achieve these objectives are:

Departmental Teaching Assistant Information (PIE-TA)
The Program for Instructional Excellence (PIE) is administered through the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), which is a unit within the Academic and Professional Program Services (APPS). It functions as the hub for faculty and graduate students to promote participation in teaching enhancement opportunities. PIE programs have therefore been designed to complement the training and orientation offered by individual departments in the university.
