By combining forces with public, private, and nonprofit sectors, the IIC will serve to lead global efforts to advance sustainability and protect the environment for generations to come. William & Mary’s size, entrepreneurial culture, and breadth and depth of academic and research fields make it uniquely positioned to help lead this conservation revolution.
