The famous animal behavior expert, conservationist and United Nations Messenger of Peace will headline the 2017 fall Honors Colloquium, which this year is titled Origins: Life, the Universe and Everything.

Goodall’s discovery that chimpanzees make and use tools revolutionized the world of primatology and redefined the relationship between humans and animals. Today, Goodall travels an average of 300 days per year, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees, other environmental crises and her reasons for hope. In her speeches and books she emphasizes the interconnectedness of all living things and the collective power of individual action.
