The Jane Claire Dirks-Edmunds lecture series at Linfield University honors Dr. Jane Claire Dirks-Edmunds, a professor of biology at Linfield from 1941 to 1974. The series brings speakers to campus to address critical environmental concerns and biological issues and to support student-faculty collaborative research. Dr. Dirks-Edmunds recognized the importance of ecological issues and humanity’s impact on nature long before environmental issues became part of the public agenda.
