The Crow Institute works to support public understanding of evolution through its outreach activities. The Outreach Committee arranges workshops for teachers, engages the local community, and supports the Teaching Evolution Seminar, a group that meets weekly to discuss issues in the teaching of Evolution at the college and pre-college levels. The committee also assists with Darwin Day, and maintains a set of resources for teachers on different topics in evolutionary biology. The committee is chaired by Deborah Rook. We are currently seeking members for this committee, and if you are interested in serving, please contact Kristin.
On-campus education efforts by the JF Crow Institute focus on engaging the students, staff, and faculty who make up the evolution community and fostering discussion on a variety of topics. The Institute supports numerous opportunities for Graduate Study in Evolutionary Biology, undergraduate study through the Evolution Option in the Biology major, and oversees the Evolution Seminar Series, Zoology and Evolution Reading Group, Evolution Journal Club, and the Teaching Evolution Seminar.
