In this learning community, students will be exposed to a broad range of issues relating to the theme of conservation biology. They will meet professors doing conservation research in the Department of Biological Sciences, attend meetings of conservation-oriented student groups, and participate in a rare species poster group project. Our class will also make connections with material covered in the first-semester biology class as a way to support learning in that class and show its conservation relevance. We also support student establishment in the university environment through exercises targeting study skills and other aspects of the student transition to Auburn. These activities will foster connectivity among the students and between the students and the Biological Sciences faculty. (1 section; 19 students)
