About Outreach

Dear alumni, friends and colleagues:

Outreach at ESF is teaching, research, and service that engages the College with external groups. Outreach activities support environmental, educational, social and economic development in ways that advance both the public good and the College's mission. To these ends, ESF faculty, staff and students, along with our partners, pursue a diverse range of programs and projects—all with an aim to enhance leadership, education, and practice in the science, design, engineering and management of natural resources and the environment. Programs include on-campus, off-campus, and online credit and non-credit opportunities for professionals, middle and high school students, ESF students, and lifelong learners.

Your thoughts, questions, and suggestions are important to us and always welcome. We look forward to hearing from you and to working with you.

Sincerely,

Dr. Chuck Spuches, Associate Provost for Outreach
