The Center for Great Lakes Literacy

Developing a community of Great Lakes literate educators, students, scientists, environmental professionals, and citizen volunteers, dedicated to improved Great Lakes stewardship.

COSEE Great Lakes has not gone away - it is finding its wings as the Center for Great Lakes Literacy.

Funding from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative in partnership with the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network.


Participate in professional development programs and join scientists as they study the Great Lakes. Bring materials, activities and experiences back to your classroom.


Are you a scientist who would like assistance engaging in educational outreach and achieving broader impacts? COSEE Great Lakes would like to help you connect with educators to build educational collaborations that can benefit and enrich your research.
