Our mission is to seek and share fundamental knowledge of the oceans through state-of-the-art scientific research, world-class field expeditions and comprehensive educational experiences. As a unit of the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory at Arizona State University and the School of Ocean Futures, we join its mission to help ensure a habitable planet and a future in which well-being is attainable.

We are committed to promoting diversity and equity in marine science and the wider STEM community. We strive to be a welcoming and inclusive community where all employees and visitors can develop, learn, grow, and discover, without regard to race, gender, sexuality, age, physical ability, creed, or country of origin. ASU BIOS faculty and staff will honor and respect your experiences, perspectives, and unique identity.

In 2023 ASU Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences celebrated 120 years of excellence in ocean science research and education.
