The Virginia Institute of Marine Science
At VIMS, we invest in the intersections.
In the places where rivers meet oceans, and shorelines seek the sea. Where people reach for water, and nature touches com munities. Between what lives below the surface and what thrives above. And in the spaces that connect technology with tradition—that’s where we discover synthesis. It moves us to transform data into policies, students into leaders, and theories into tangible change. It compels us to find solutions to global problems, to work to restore marine life, and to freely share the answers we find. Above all it propels us towards hope— because at VIMS, we all exist simply as
people who love the Bay, and the great wide world it intersects with.
