Dear Collegues and Friends;
Some of you may be aware that we have experienced some challenging budget cuts at Iowa State University during the recent economic downturn. While these cuts have forced all of us to prioritize and do more with less, be assured that EEOB maintains its focus on excellence in teaching and research.
As you explore our website or read our newsletters, I hope you feel as we do, that the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology at ISU is among the best such departments in the nation, a real gem of learning and discovery, where world-class research is being conducted and conveyed, and where student at all levels, from undergraduate through post-doctoral, are provided first-rate education and training. It is a privelege to be a part of this scientific beehive.
Yet we can use your support! There are many ways in which you can help us succeed, and toward this end, please see the links to the left regarding means in which you can financially support EEOB and ISU students. I thank you in advance for your commitment to the future of the department.
Sincerely, and with gratitude,
Jonathan F. Wendel, Professor and Chair
