Center for Arctic Study and Policy

The Center for Arctic Study & Policy (CASP) develops and executes research and analysis to support U.S. Coast Guard missions and national policy and strategic objectives in the Arctic.  The Center helps stakeholders work together – including specialists from academia, government, indigenous peoples and organizations, non-governmental organizations, industry, international allies and partners, and the U.S. Coast Guard.

CASP supports Coast Guard interests in the Arctic through research, partnerships, and education. These efforts are focused on Coast Guard presence in the Arctic – to ensure safe, secure, and environmentally responsible maritime activity in this complex, changing environment.

At the Academy, CASP leads interdisciplinary efforts in the academic division, with Coast Guard sponsors and external partners, to develop solutions to maritime challenges in this region.  CASP is situated in the Academy’s Office of Scholarship, Research, and Innovation.
