Aldo Leopold Leadership Program Selects First Cohort

(OSU - Corvallis) - The Aldo Leopold Leadership Program (ALLP)--a new communications training and networking program for environmental scientists--today announced selection of its inaugural class of 20 Fellows.

"This first group of Fellows has been selected from a field of outstanding scientists," said ALLP Program Director, Dr. Judith Vergun, at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon. "We're now organizing the training for them that will take place this year on June 15-21 at the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in Oregon, and on September 9-14 in Washington, D.C."

According to Vergun, ALLP is a five-year program for training environmental scientists to better understand the various communities in which scientific information is used. Upon completion of their training, ALLP Fellows will have enhanced their ability to share scientific knowledge about environmental issues among the media, policy makers, and the private sector.

"Fellows within the Aldo Leopold Leadership Program are committed to the clear presentation of information about environmental issues," said Dr. Jane Lubchenco, Steering Committee Chair for ALLP, "and there is a sustained need for scientifically credible communication in this area." An OSU distinguished professor of zoology, Lubchenco is past president of both the Ecological Society of America and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Members of the steering committee and advisory board for ALLP include representatives from leading universities, government and private agencies, and the news media. ALLP Steering Committee members are affiliated with Oregon State University, Stanford University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, Time Magazine, National Public Radio, the Environmental Defense Fund, the Smithsonian Institution, and the National Science Foundation--and include a former member of the U.S. Senate.
