Wabash Events Calendar

November 08, 2021

All event times are Eastern Time Zone unless otherwise specified.

Wabash has spent the summer taking appropriate measures to protect our campus community's health, and yet we cannot predict what public health conditions might be two weeks or two months from now. To that end, we expect our alumni, parents, and guests to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to coming to campus for events and activities. (If you cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons, please let us know and we will try to make the appropriate arrangements to protect your health.)
 
Face masks are required for all unvaccinated persons while indoors on the Wabash campus. Face masks are also required when 50 or more people are gathered indoors, regardless of vaccination status.

APC Meeting

Building Inclusive Classrooms (Sork): Center Hall 216 Classroom, 4:15PM - 5:15PM

Building Inclusive Classrooms: Obstacles and paths for success of all students.

Join ΦBK Visiting Scholar Dr Victoria Sork, Distinguished Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at UCLA, for a stimulating conversation. As dean of life sciences, we developed programs to enhance student experience, improve pedagogy in the  classroom, and educate faculty about their implicit biases  that affect student learning. The outcome was increased diversity in the life science undergraduate student body by improved retention. The goal of this talk is to help faculty and administrators consider strategies for creating a more inclusive culture at their institutions that will increase diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Victoria Sork is an accomplished leader, a renowned evolutionary and conservation biologist, a passionate teacher, a dedicated mentor, and a respected administrator. Professor Sork maintains an active research program studying evolutionary and ecological processes in tree populations with a particular commitment to discovering how long-lived trees will survive rapid climate warming.

Why Trees Go Nuts (Sork): Baxter Hall 101 Lovell Lecture Room, 7:30PM - 9:00PM

 Why Trees Go Nuts: Climate, Birds, and People

Join ΦBK Visiting Scholar Dr Victoria Sork, Distinguished Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at UCLA, for an exploration of the ecological implications of a changing supply of acorns. Acorns are not only essential for the viability of oak populations but they provide a valuable food source for wildlife, insects, and even humans. This talk with address related questions about the biology of acorns. Why and how do trees produce acorn crops synchronously and how does climate shape acorn production?  Do large acorn crops affect the birds that consume and disperse them?  What is the role of acorns in indigenous cultures?
