Our environment and society are changing – dramatically. The world needs conservation leaders with the passion, creativity and critical-thinking skills to help build a sustainable future. With your support, the faculty and students at the W.A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation will do exactly that. We will add crucial faculty positions, enhance our top-rated programs of national distinction and develop innovative, field-based learning opportunities. We will ensure students and faculty have access to the tools and resources they need necessary to usher in a new generation of conservation scientists, policymakers and advocates.
