Special Announcement - Dinner with Dr. David Foster
April 3, 2017
Monday, April 3, 2017
Dear Members of the Class of 2020:
The Freshman Dean’s Office will host a small, private dinner at the Faculty Club on Wednesday, April 12 at 6:00 pm, at which a select group of 10 first-year students will have the opportunity to dine with Dr. David Foster, Director of the Harvard Forest and senior lecturer in the Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology. If you are interested in this exceptional opportunity, and can commit to attending from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, please apply.
The Harvard Forest is a 4,000-acre experimental forest in north-central Massachusetts, where scientists and students explore the ways biological, physical, and human systems interact to change our earth. Dr. Foster is currently conducting research with freshmen at the Harvard Forest in the seminar Global Change Ecology: Forests, Ecosystem Function, and the Future. His remarks will focus on ecological and conservation studies at the Harvard Forest and how these are advancing land protection across New England. In particular, he is very interested in hearing from students about ways in which Harvard undergraduates might become more actively involved in Harvard Forest efforts, including ALPINE (Academics for Land Protection in New England), a growing consortium of more than 45 colleges and universities that is based at the Harvard Forest and Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.
This dinner is part of the FDO’s Uncommon Fare program, designed to give freshmen a chance to meet outstanding members of the Harvard community, to meet one another, and to see what is truly special about the College. Made possible by a generous, anonymous grant, this is the final Uncommon Fare dinner of the spring term.
Repeats every week every Monday until Mon May 07 2018 except Mon Dec 18 2017, Mon Dec 25 2017, Mon Jan 01 2018, Mon Jan 08 2018, Mon Jan 15 2018.
