As part of our mission, Unit scientists teach graduate level courses, mentor graduate students, and conduct workshops for our cooperators. By combining teaching, research and technical assistance, the Vermont Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit provides students not only with an opportunity to pursue a graduate degree, but also receive unparalleled scientific training and applied work experience.

Students in the Vermont Unit Program can pursue an M.S. or Ph.D. degree through the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont. Students working with with Dr. Donovan generally participate in the Forest and Wildlife Sciences concentration.
