giving to WMU

Make a profound impact on the maritime & ocean community
In support of the WMU Endowment Fund efforts, the Stewards of the Sea campaign aims to achieve the strategic objective of long-term financial stability, independence and sustainability of the University and to augment WMU’s capacity to provide education, training, research, scholarship and capacity building in maritime and ocean related matters for government officials and industry stakeholders, particularly those in developing countries.


WMU’s work is indispensable in supporting and promoting smooth and effective implementation and enforcement of IMO’s shipping regulations. The University has equipped generations of maritime leaders with the necessary skills to take on this important responsibility. I have no hesitation to state that graduating from WMU was the foundation of my future career, and was one of the most important occasions in my life.
