Since the program began 12 years ago, Project Dragonfly‘s Earth Expeditions graduate courses – on which the master’s programs are based – have engaged more than 1,850 people in firsthand educational and scientific research at critical conservation field sites in Africa, Australia, Asia and the Americas. Dragonfly is located in the department of biology at Miami University, a state university in Oxford, Ohio. Miami was established in 1809 and is listed as one of the eight original Public Ivies.
