This Week 4/7 @ GAS

Please join us this Friday at 4pm in EH 1104 for a talk by Amelia Meier titled Improving Forest Elephant Protection by Integrating Behavior into Management Strategies“.
 
This will be a practice prelim talk and I’ll chat about combining GPS-collar data and fecal genetics to determine the ecological drivers of forest elephant aggregations. If nothing else, there will be lots of picture of elephants and some field stories 🙂

NPAC’s Mission Statement

NPAC’s Mission Statement

The Nicholas PhD Advocacy Council (NPAC) is a group composed of peer-elected students from the Nicholas School-affiliated PhD programs (ENV, UPE, UPEP, MSC, TOX, EOS) which aims to represent and support the academic and professional interests of all Nicholas School-affiliated PhD students, while fostering a sense of community within the Nicholas School. NPAC aims to:

  • Strengthen professional and social relationships among students in Nicholas School-affiliated PhD programs (e.g. through professional development activities such as the Graduate Afternoon Seminar).
  • Advocate for the academic and professional interests of Nicholas School-affiliated PhD students
  • Provide support to program administrators for PhD student needs (e.g. Nicholas School PhD student orientation)
  • Provide representation for Nicholas School-affiliated PhD students to other administrative and advocacy groups (e.g. Nicholas School faculty meetings, Duke Graduate and Professional Student Council)
