Welcome to SRM
Since its inception in 1911 with the opening of the College, the Sustainable Resources Management Department at ESF has been central to the vision (Improve your world) and mission of the College and at the forefront of defining our professions related to managing natural and built systems.
Our mission in SRM is to advance our understanding of current environmental issues through cutting edge research, education, and outreach, with a special focus on sustainably managing renewable, natural and constructed resources, including energy, forests, recreation, soils, water, and building materials, to provide short- and long-term benefits with and for people. With a group of internationally known faculty, we address these issues both locally and nationally, across a range of scales through both applied and fundamental research, technology transfer and teaching.
SRM students work closely with faculty recognized by their students and peers as among the best in the world. SRM faculty include SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professors and Distinguished Service Professors, as well as recipients of the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching, the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Professional Service, and the ESF President's Public Service Award. More than a third of SRM professors have been awarded the ESF Distinguished Teacher Award by the ESF student body, many more than once. ESF professors also serve in leadership roles in professional societies.
