          Institute for Integrative Conservation to be established at William & Mary with $19.3 million 对于大胆 gift

          研究院将围绕解决最棘手的全球环境问题, 支持大学的雄心勃勃的2030碳中和目标

          William & Mary has received a $19.3 million gift from an alumna who wishes to remain anonymous to establish a landmark Institute for Integrative Conservation (IIC). The gift will position the university as a global leader in transformational research to protect ecosystems and safeguard world populations. It will cultivate leaders prepared to drive policy, advance advocacy and inspire action at the local, national and international levels.

          在2020年推出,在IIC将在这一关键领域的全国首屈一指的跨学科研究所。其新颖的节目,学术界联合的力量与公共,私人和非营利部门的事先解决世界上最紧迫的保护和可持续发展的挑战。

          “该研究所将能够与主要外部伙伴的合作,并且确保所有大学新的协同效应。只能通过这种跨学科的合作,才能确保最宝贵的财富在这个星球上的活力 - 我们的环境,说:”总裁凯瑟琳一个。罗。 “此外,因为多样性加快问题的解决,我们正在致力于扩大代表性不足的学生,教职员工进入养护行业的管道。”

          “我们深深地感谢我们的校友为她的热情和大胆的设想。我们认为,该研究所拥有巨大的潜力,以加速在近期和未来可操作的保护解决方案,”罗伊说。

          The institute will support multidisciplinary teams of faculty, staff and students to address conservation issues in a multitude of ways. Teams drawn from all of William & Mary’s five schools — the 弗吉尼亚海洋科学研究所, 法学院, Faculty of Arts & Sciences, Raymond A. Mason 商学院 and 教育学校 will collaborate on research projects and convene international conversations with leading experts at other universities, the federal government, nonprofit organizations and private companies.

          “综合保护”是一个整体,并以证据为基础的方法来改善生态,社会和经济后果。它认为人类和环境的挑战,旨在平衡保护战略与经济可持续发展和福祉的土著居民。 

          可能在IIC需要解决的问题之一是海平面上升和海岸稳定性,生物多样性的威胁,人类与野生动物冲突,新技术,能够更有效的保护,以及在联合国可持续发展目标所阐明挑战的发展。

          In order to identify conservation priorities and ensure maximum impact on the environment, William & Mary will establish a network of conservation professionals from a broad range of sectors. The collaborative network will drive research agendas on campus, generating actionable policy data to advance conservation on the ground.

          “Conservation requires collaborative partnerships that transcend traditional boundaries and redefine the status quo. Time is of the essence and I believe that the institute is just what we need to bring significant change to our world,” said the alumna, who serves on the William & Mary Foundation Board of Trustees.

          “William & Mary is uniquely positioned to be at the forefront of global conservation efforts because of its strength and expertise in the humanities, public policy, sciences and data analytics. The university’s diverse student body combined with its size, focus on entrepreneurial thinking and proximity to the nation’s capital, where many of the top conservation organizations are located, are all assets that will be crucial to advancing the institute’s mission,” she added. “This is an investment in our future, in our environment and in the people at William & Mary and beyond who will undoubtedly help change the course of history.”

          As part of the institute’s goals — all of which will be fully funded through this gift — William & Mary will:

          • 利用新兴技术和数据分析,以使在地面上和海洋中的更有效的保护工作带来的好处。这种进步将解决人类和可持续性的经济层面,包括对土著居民的影响。
          • 建立强大的实习机会和国际奖学金项目预备天赋和多样化的学生在这个快速增长的行业蓬勃发展的事业。在同一时间,确保跨保护领域的人才,强大的管道通过充分代表,国际和第一代的学生和妇女绘制此重要工作。
          • 聘请国际知名专家,并利用当前教师的人才和专业知识,建立综合保护一个新的多学科的教育模式。
          • 增长持续,重点合作保护组织和研究人员之间,同时指导基于大学的研究人员向着务实的解决办法,以注入新的理念和解决方案,为保护实践。这些合作伙伴关系将使大学的方式有利于世界领先的非政府养护组织培养新的保护从业者。

          “We are thrilled to partner with William & Mary in tackling tough environmental issues and advancing science-based research that will inform sound policies at every level of government, both domestically and internationally,” said Michael Ulica, president and COO of the National Geographic Society. “This groundbreaking institute has the potential to revolutionize the way we address some of the gravest threats facing nature and humankind.”

          根据1938年班教授约翰襁褓,谁帮助指导建立IIC的,“为保护一个综合性的课程将很快被开发,使大学拓宽课程设置增强了深入的研究和探索。我们正在扩大未来保护从业者的技能和管道 - 的领导人,谁可以帮助防止我们的环境退化,生态系统相互关联,这是在这样一个快节奏发生“。

          从礼品资金将支持一个新的综合保护课程为本科生和研究生在保护新兴的职业生涯做好准备。这项工作的一个重要方面,将保护居住在地区的土著人,其中不良环境的变化正在发生,由于气候变化,污染和栖息地丧失和其他问题。作为这种努力的一部分,IIC将参与和教育的国际学生,使他们能够积极参与保护工作在本国回提高福祉外来人口的。

          William & Mary also announced today its commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030. The announcement represents another step forward for the university in its sustainability efforts, according to Swaddle, who also co-chairs the university’s Committee on Sustainability (CoS). William & Mary will soon unveil a Climate Action Plan developed by the CoS and facilitated by the Office of Sustainability, which will include strategies and goals for research and education to promote sustainability and carbon neutrality — all of which will have great synergies with the design and launch of the new IIC, Swaddle added. The climate action plan includes commitments to partner with the University of Virginia in data sharing and best practices.

          “The institute is a game-changer for William & Mary and for our global conservation and sustainability efforts,” said Director of the Center for Geospatial Analysis Robert Rose. Rose, like Swaddle, played a leadership role in envisioning the institute.

          According to Rose, the IIC will function interdependently with existing William & Mary schools and departments as well as external partners. This approach will enable the institute to bring about well-informed change in conservation policy and action through collaborative, interdisciplinary research and education.

          在$ 19.3万的礼品是大学的$ 1十亿的一部分 对于大胆 fundraising campaign, which will conclude next year. To date, William & Mary has raised more than $920 million in its campaign.

Lambert ’99. “The institute will change the trajectory of how we address these global issues and will enable our students, faculty and the university as a whole — together with conservation leaders from around the globe —to collaboratively solve the greatest environmental challenges of our time.”
