Global Engagement

Science is a global effort  

Eiffel Tower

Science has been conducted on a global scale ever since naturalists began accompanying traders and explorers on their expeditions. Today it is almost expected that scientists will collaborate with international colleagues. Even though we are located in rural south Georgia the faculty in the Department of Biology continue this tradition of global engagement.
