Webb Institute maintains several programs in order to support the past, present, and future of naval architecture and marine engineering. Webb is a founding member of the Naval Engineering Education Consortium and operates a state-of-the-art distanced learning laboratory. The Webb Institute SNAME Section is a proud supporter of the SeaPerch underwater robotics program that inspires inquisitive young minds to dive into naval architecture.
The Webb Community is also encouraged to give back. Each year Webb supports the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Walk to Cure Diabetes. In the spring, Webb students can be seen sporting shiny, shaven heads for St. Baldrick's Day, a fundraiser for childhood cancer research.
