The mission of the ACGL is to conduct research and education activities that advance knowledge regarding coastal processes and hazards and by doing so, provide applicable data products that inform decision making while providing research and workforce development opportunities for students.

The ACGL was formed in 2015 by Chris Maio and is part of the Geoscience Department within the College of Natural Science and Mathematics.   The ACGL has steadily been expanding and building its network of research collaborators and stakeholder partners.
