Project Dragonfly is 25!

Students in Namibia

This is a big year for Project Dragonfly, as we’re celebrating 25 years!

In 1995, Dragonfly received a major grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for an education reform initiative that has since grown to include groundbreaking degree programs in which students, faculty, alumni and community partners across the U.S. and worldwide work together for needed ecological and social change. It has been quite a journey.

Thank you to our community of educators, conservationists, community leaders, students, instructors, and alums who have been part of the journey and continue to make positive change around the world.
