Great Lakes Center for Maritime Studies

LAKE MICHIGAN WATER TRAIL MICHIGAN HERITAGE WATER TRAILS

      The Great Lakes Center for Maritime Studies (GLCMS) was founded in 1997 to help unite the intellect, energy, and diverse participants that shape the study of Great Lakes maritime history, culture, and ecology. Operating from the premise that teaching and research should respond to the community, the GLCMS consistently advances the principles of public scholarship. The GLCMS aims to build a better understanding of how the Great Lakes have influenced political, economic, social, and cultural trends locally and globally. In fostering an inclusive spirit of historical, cultural, and ecological inquiry, the GLCMS draws on a wide range of collaborators in all its projects. The long societal reach of the GLCMS learning objectives is reflected in the partnership that coordinates its activities: Western Michigan University and the Michigan Maritime Museum.
