Wabash continues to actively monitor our campus community’s health and implement appropriate measures to protect it. Our approaches change based on the public health conditions here on campus and in the broader community. Wabash encourages all members of the campus community to be fully vaccinated, including receiving booster shots. Face masks are required in all campus buildings, including classes, labs, and instructor-led activities, for at least the first two weeks of the spring semester. Face coverings are not required when students are in their sleeping or study rooms or when employees are in their personal offices.
Wabash is restricting attendance at athletic events and other campus activities to the campus community – as defined by those persons who are participating in the College’s COVID Pass app and campus mitigation strategies. Face masks are required at all indoor events. All guidelines are subject to change with updates on our COVID-19 Information page.

Oaks and Evolutionary Success (Sork): Baxter Hall 101 Lovell Lecture Room, 12:00PM - 1:00PM
Oaks: An Evolutionary Success Story Now in Jeopardy
Join ΦBK Visiting Scholar Dr Victoria Sork, Distinguished Professor of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at UCLA, for an exploration of the evolutionary history of oaks. Sandwiches served at 11:45.
Oaks are the most abundant and diverse tree taxa in North American forests. They evolved in the warm paleo-arctic over 50 million years ago and migrated southward as the planet cooled, diversifying into hundreds of species across North America, Asia, and Europe. This talk will discuss the evolutionary history of oaks, describe some genomic features of oaks that have facilitated their success, and finish with evidence that oaks are in jeopardy due to global warming and how we might manage tree populations to help them survive.
Victoria Sork is an accomplished leader, a renowned evolutionary and conservation biologist, a passionate teacher, a dedicated mentor, and a respected administrator. Professor Sor
