Join us in honoring the remarkable career and extraordinary legacy of Dr. M. Dennis Hanisak, a beloved and renowned member of our faculty, esteemed scientist, dedicated educator, and so much more. For over 30 years, Dr. Hanisak mentored aspiring young scientists, opening minds to the wonders of the marine environment, and preparing students to become career professionals. In 2002, Dr. Hanisak founded one of the nation’s premier marine science education programs, Semester By The Sea.
