The School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences is proud to present the 2013 Weaver Lecture, to be given by Dr. Barry Goodell, Professor in the Department of Sustainable Biomaterials at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech). The lecture, titled “Sustainable Growth in Education in the Field of Sustainable Biomaterials,” will be held Wednesday, November 20, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. in the Forestry and Wildlife Sciences Building, Room 1101. A reception for Dr. Goodell will be held at 2:30.
Dr. Goodell’s lecture will focus on changes that have been occurring in educational programs related to forestry, forest products and sustainable biomaterials. Despite the strong employment potential for their graduates several once-strong educational programs, particularly in the forest products field, have disappeared over the past three decades.
The School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences’ Weaver Lecture Series was established in May of 1996 through an endowment provided by Earl H. and Sandra H. Weaver. The objective of the Series is to bring individuals with expertise in various aspects of forestry and wildlife sciences to the Auburn University campus to enhance the School’s academic programs through public lectures and interaction with faculty and students.
