Jerrold H. Zar received his undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences from Northern Illinois University in 1962. He later earned his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biology and zoology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Zar then returned to Northern Illinois University for 34 years to serve in a variety of capacities. He joined the faculty at NIU as an Assistant Professor in 1968 and quickly rose through the ranks of associate and full professor to become Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences in 1978. He served two terms as Chair of the Department and then, became the Vice Provost for Graduate Studies and Research and Dean of the Graduate School. He was a founder of the Illinois Minority Graduate Incentive Program and the Illinois Consortium for Educational Opportunities Program, where he helped create and protect fellowship opportunities for minority graduate students at universities across the state. Zar is a member of 17 professional scientific societies, including being an elected fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His many research publications cover a range of topics, from statistical analysis to physiological adaptations of animals to their environment.
