Glenn Dobrogosz can trace his fascination with wildlife back to the age of five when his family moved into a home that had a rocky creek and huge bamboo thicket in the backyard – an environment which quickly became his outdoor laboratory and living zoo. Glenn pursued that interest in nature by obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Biology at Appalachian State University. After a stint in the Peace Corps, Glenn enrolled in Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo before officially beginning his zoo career at the Indianapolis Zoo. He served as the Executive Director at the Thompson Park Zoo and the Zoo at Chehaw before landing in his current role as the CEO of the Greensboro Science Center.
Glenn’s career has been defined by creative vision, constant advancement, and innovative development. He has served as the Chair of the Accreditation Commission, and has volunteered as an accreditation inspector since 2009. He deeply believes that the accreditation process should be a positive and proactive experience that helps the continued evolution and success of the organization under review.
