To encourage informal interactions and dialogue that enhance the understanding of Trustees and Members about WHOI science and culture, as well as the understanding of scientists and engineers about the activities, interests, and concerns of Trustees and Members.
The Partnership Program is specifically not a fund-raising activity. The Program provides a mechanism to enable a WHOI scientist or engineer and a Trustee or Corporation Member to become acquainted and, over a period of two years, work together to develop a professional and personal relationship that can enrich the experience of both and increase the understanding of each for a different field of endeavor.
Partners discuss the kinds of interactions they most enjoy and develop the partnership as they wish. Every partnership is different. Some involve only formal interactions, while others may include social meetings or family activities.
