Dr. Don Melnick, Thomas Hunt Morgan Professor of Conservation Biology, was elected to the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) in March 2019. The CFR is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization dedicated to being a resource for public sector, private sector, and civil society leaders in order to help them better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other countries.
