The Vidalakis Family Cretan Scholars Program

The program was established by Nicholas and Nancy Vidalakis, who are of Cretan decent, to create a dynamic partnership between Crete, Greece and the United States, and to allow Hellenic ideals- the foundation of Western Civilization and particularly American society- to further flourish. To meet some of the program requirements, Drexel has partnered with the Technological Educational Institute of Crete (TEI), which is located in the city of Heraklion. Through this collaboration students receive job placement assistance as well as in-country support. Students also have the opportunity to partake in a variety of cultural excursions and meet other exchange students from around Europe, such as from the Erasmus program. Over 50 students have participated in the program from various majors including, but not limited to, business, communication, hospitality, international area studies, and psychology. Learn More

Bioko Island Research Project

Bioko is an 800 square mile tropical island lying 20 miles off the coast of Cameroon in West Africa's Gulf of Guinea. Its tropical rainforests and high volcanic peaks (10,000 ft.) have provided a refuge for many unusual plants and animals. Unfortunately the larger animals on the island, especially the seven species of native monkeys and the four species of nesting sea turtles, are now threatened by an unsustainable commercial bush meat market. The Wildlife Center was organized in 1998 in response to this threat and now has established programs in:

  • Research (sea turtles, primates, bush meat market dynamics)
  • Active conservation (including local forest and beach patrols and faculty involvement) to encourage protection of this wildlife
