Curricula – Relation between Forestry, Natural Resource Management, and Environmental Science/Studies
- What are differing or defining roles of programs in ‘Forestry’ vs. Natural Resource Management and Environmental Science/Studies in terms of skills and abilities, knowledge, and behaviors that distinguish them from one another in preparing students for jobs in forest resource science and management?
- Is ‘forestry’ attractive to students? If not, what needs to be done to make it a more desired program?
- What is the ‘operating environment’ in terms of societal expectations, economic conditions, national and international relations and how should these shape forestry programs?
