Orkin's Commitment to Education

Orkin’s formal commitment to public education dates back to the 1950s when local Orkin professionals first began making educational presentations in neighborhood schools. These days, we are partnering with universities and schools across the country to provide resources and expertise in school classrooms and support academic research in the field of entomology.

Orkin Endowment for UGA Professorship

Orkin is committed to education and supporting science that delivers transformative research to the world. In April 2023, Orkin created a $500,000 endowment to establish the Orkin Professorship in Urban Entomology at the University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES). Through the endowment, Dr. Daniel Suiter can provide continuing education to the structural pest control industry and serve as a technical resource for Agriculture and Natural Resources agents in Georgia. Specializing in insect problems associated with homes and other structures, Suiter's program generates, assimilates and extends knowledge and training to the industry while providing additional problem-solving services.
