Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved in the CMIL community, whether you are already a student, faculty, or staff at SDSU, or if you are a member of the general public. We encourage people of all backgrounds to get involved in marine science and explore what CMIL has to offer. See below for ways to join!


The Marine Ecology Biology Student Association (MEBSA) is a student run organization based at the CMIL that connects the academic community and provides marine science outreach.

Ways of Giving

Your gifts of support go directly towards providing funding for research resources, seminar series, education and outreach initiatives, and scholarships. Please consider giving to CMIL.
