The College of William & Mary and Virginia Commonwealth University are collaborating through the Center for Conservation Biology to take advantage of the research and expertise of their respective environmental science programs.
On Jan. 26, VCU President Eugene P. Trani, Ph.D., and William & Mary President Taylor Reveley signed a memorandum of understanding at the VCU Rice Center allowing for joint appointments within this center. A major player in the field of eagle and osprey conservation, the Center for Conservation Biology will be a natural collaborator with the VCU Rice Center whose considerable expertise also covers the area of species conservation and restoration.
