Commencement ’05–Goodall to hold book signing following CommencementMay 10, 2005Sara Millersemortim@syr.edu
Dr. Jane Goodall, world-renowned chimpanzee expert and the 2005 Commencement speaker for Syracuse University and the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, will hold a book signing immediately following the May 15 ceremony. Goodall will be signing copies of her books at the SU Bookstore, located in the Hildegarde and J. Myer Schine Student Center, beginning at approximately 12:30 p.m. Copies of her books will be available for purchase at the University Bookstore.
Free public parking for the book signing will be offered in the University Avenue Garage on a space-available basis.
Goodall is author of more than 20 books, including the best-selling “Reason for Hope: A Spiritual Journey” (Warner Books, 1999), and several children’s books.
Founded in 1977, the Jane Goodall Institute continues Goodall’s pioneering research into chimpanzee behavior — research which transformed scientific perceptions of the relationship between humans and animals. Today, the Institute is a global leader in the effort to protect chimpanzees and their habitats. It also is widely recognized for establishing innovative community-centered conservation and development programs in Africa, and the Roots & Shoots education program, which has groups in more than 87 countries. JGI’s newest programs in Africa are linked not only geographically through the Congo Basin watershed, but also thematically by addressing the root social and economic factors that shape human relationships with the environment.
