First Paragraph

In a professional field such as oceanography, societies relate strongly to academic units. Those units, usually departments, introduce careers to individuals and initiate their preparations for them. Societies then guide, nourish, and represent the individuals in professional growth. The Oceanography Society can take advantage of related experience already accumulated in the on-campus development of oceanography.
