GLENVILLE, WV-Twelve Glenville State College students and Science and Mathematics Department faculty members Dr. Kevin Evans, Dr. Joe Evans, and Dr. Gary Morris traveled to Duquesne University in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania to attend Darwin Day, an annual, international celebration of the life and work of Charles Darwin.

Dr. John Doebley at the Darwin Day event

The seminar, presented by Dr. John Doebley, a professor of genetics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a member of the National Academy of Science, explored the controversial idea that domestication is a suitable model to study natural selection.

The seminar provided an opportunity for students and faculty to interact off campus and outside of the classroom. With the event being an international celebration, it allowed GSC students to network and collaborate with other students from all around the world.

Morris, who also serves as the Science and Math Department Chairperson, expressed that, for him, the biggest highlight was students being able to hear a top-notch scientist talk about research that directly relates to topics covered in the classroom.

Senior GSC biology and psychology student Elisabeth Coombs said, “I enjoyed taking this trip to the Darwin Day Seminar. It was interesting to hear the presentations and meet other students from all over. I appreciate the professors for organizing the outing for us.” In addition to Coombs, other students who attended included: Emily Ramezan, Tia LeMaster, Richard Sloan, Maren Wentzel, Chris Curtis, Randy Smith, Chase Cunningham, Brantz O’Brient, Mark Fowler, Judith Kennen, and Sam Canfield.

Throughout the trip both faculty and students said they were constantly learning and realizing how much humans are domesticating and effecting natural selection.
