Jack Buckley- President
Jack Buckley is one of the founding members of CSCR and currently serves as President. Jack came to the general field of coastal research in a very roundabout way. His journey into the science world began as a teacher in Cohasset’s Alternative School, an experiential-learning program that brought him to the waters of Cohasset in 1987. From there, he immersed himself in project-based learning activities, helped create the Summer Institute program, and convened the first board that championed the creation of CSCR. Jacks holds a B.A. in psychology from Wesleyan University and a M.A. in Education from Tufts University. In addition to overseeing the general operation of CSCR throughout the year, Jack develops research projects for and with students that utilize GIS tools and technology.
