A partnership between the Newport Aquarium, Thomas More College and the nonprofit WAVE Foundation aims to give marine biology students some hands-on experience.
Thomas More President David A. Armstrong called the collaboration "groundbreaking" in that students will be able to work with aquatic animals in an aquarium that is private, but open to the public.
The school in Crestview Hills is a Catholic liberal arts institution with about 1,600 students.
Aquarium Vice President and Executive Director Eric Rose say the new relationship will strengthen the college and the aquarium.
