AU professor to focus on Botswana at next noontime Bergren Forum

Heather Zimbler-DeLorenzo, assistant professor in the Biology Department at Alfred University, will present “Botswana as a Model for a Short-term Study” on Thursday, Sept. 30, during AU’s Bergren Forum, 12:10 p.m., in Powell Campus Center’s Nevins Theatre. This event is free of charge and open to the public.

The talk will be about Zimbler-DeLorenzo’s experiences this past summer on the CIEE (Study Abroad) Faculty Development Program to Botswana as well as a spring course (BIOL 300: Southern African Ecology, Conservation, and Cultures) that will take students to Botswana for three weeks in May.

Zimbler-DeLorenzo studied at Emory University, Atlanta, where she earned bachelor of science and bachelor of arts degrees in anthropology and biology, respectively. She earned a Ph.D. in biological science from Auburn University, Auburn, AL.

The Bergren Forum, sponsored by the Alfred University Division of Human Studies, meets Thursdays during each academic semester at the University. Participants are encouraged to bring a lunch; coffee and tea will be available.
