Dr. Jonathan Scott, professor of biology and associate academic dean for special projects at the University of Mount Union will present “What Do We Really Know About Biology?” on Tuesday, November 23 at the LINC luncheon held at Mount Union.
Scott will be discussing diversity of life on Earth and highlighting where humans fit in. He will also share his top ten list of new species discovered in the last three years.
A member of the Mount Union faculty since 1990, Scott graduated magna cum laude from Carroll College, earning a bachelor of science degree in biology. He also earned a master of science degree in botany from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a doctoral degree in biological sciences from Northwestern University.
The community luncheon series known as LINC (lunch, information, networking and conversation) was conceived to take advantage of the local expertise that exists in Alliance, in light of the University’s exceptional academic reputation. This is an opportunity to gain practical knowledge from local experts and a chance to interact with members of the University and greater Alliance community.
The sessions are open to the public and will run from noon until 1 p.m. The cost of lunch is $10, and will be served in the Hoover-Price Campus Center. Payment will be accepted at the door, but space is limited.
