At the forefront of defining professions that sustainably manage natural and built systems.

Home > Sustainable Resources Management

By studying and working to preserve and utilize our resources, we can help to better the environment while providing short- and long-term benefits for people. In the department of Sustainable Resources Management (SRM), students learn to use and sustainably manage renewable, natural, and constructed resources — such as energy, forests, soils, water, and building materials — from faculty who address these issues through applied and fundamental research, technology transfer, and teaching. Our program is designed to advance our understanding of current environmental issues through cutting-edge research, education, and outreach.
