Mission Statement

The School of Natural Resources and Environment's overarching objective is to contribute to the protection of the earth's resources and the achievement of a sustainable society. Through research, teaching, and outreach, faculty, staff, and students are devoted to generating knowledge and developing policies, techniques and skills to help practitioners manage and conserve natural and environmental resources to meet the full range of human needs on a sustainable basis.

Description

In 1950, the University of Michigan formally established the School of Natural Resources, the first of its kind in the world, but the study of natural resources and environmental problems has been part of the University for over 100 years. Fittingly, the school changed its name to the School of Natural Resources and Environment in 1992.

The school remains an international leader in educating students to be innovative and effective stewards of the environment. The school's facilities include terrestrial, aquatic, and analytical laboratories; a microcomputer laboratory; a remote-sensing laboratory; a computer graphics laboratory for landscape architecture; and a geographic information systems laboratory.

In addition, Nichols Arboretum, Stinchfield Woods and Saginaw Forest, and the University's Biological Field Station and Matthaei Botanical Gardens are available to the school for research and field work.
