For 75 years, students and marine scientists have been coming to Carteret County learn about the oceanic environment, its flora, fauna and the natural systems that govern the waves, at the UNC Institute of Marine Sciences.

Located in Morehead City, UNC-IMS was established in the second half of 1947. IMS Director Dr. Rick Luettich told the News-Times staff, faculty and alumni are celebrating the institute’s 75th anniversary this year with a variety of events they’re scheduling throughout 2022.
