Southern California Marine Institute SCMI Charity Profile
The Southern California Marine Institute (SCMI) represents a strategic alliance of 10 major universities in southern California. Ten universities from the California State University System representing the Ocean Studies Institute (Dominguez Hills, Fullerton, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Northridge, Pomona, San Bernardino and San Marcos) combined their marine resources with those of the University of Southern California, Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies and Occidental College. These marine resources include the research vessels R/V SEAWATCH and R/V YELLOWFIN. Other resources include scientific equipment, and buildings (offices, laboratories, storage facilities, machine and wood shops) valued at over 1.3 million dollars. The facilities and docking space for the vessels are located on Terminal Island, in the heart of Los Angeles Harbor.
