Wildlife biologist, Blake McCann will accept his Distinguished Dissertation Award at the 2014 Scholarly Forum

The culmination of a graduate degree results in a dissertation, thesis or creative project and is the student’s opportunity to synthesize the body of knowledge with which they have worked closely for several years. It may also, in the case of a dissertation, demonstrate the contribution of new knowledge to the field of study. 

The School of Graduate Studies recognizes the outstanding work for students who graduated the previous academic year. Academic departments nominate their best graduates, and a committee of emeritus faculty reviews the nominations for award selection.

The 2013 Distinguished Dissertation Award will be presented to Blake McCann, PhD for his work Genetic Relationships for Wild Pigs (Sus scrofa) in the United States: Geographic Origins and Genotypic Distribution of the Species with Implications for Management during the 2014 Scholarly Forum on Wednesday, March 12th, 2014 at 12:00 pm.  

Blake was unable to join us for the awards reception last year as he was beginning a new job as a Wildlife Biologist at Theodore Roosevelt National Park. The School of Graduate Studies is pleased to invite Blake to campus during the Scholarly Forum to recognize his achievement. The timing is particularly fitting since graduate students from the UND Biology department are involved in a day long session of presentations about their graduate research topics.

The presentation will take place in the Lecture Bowl on the second floor of the Memorial Union.  The event is free and open to all.
