The LRES Department offers outstanding, world-class faculty members who are involved in teaching, research and service. This gives students the critical benefit of being mentored by those who are actively creating the knowledge they teach. We also provide excellent academic advising, friendly staff, and have a full-time Academic Programs Coordinator to facilitate student success. Our unique location in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem as well as proximity to the northern Great Plains provides an unparalleled natural laboratory as well as superb opportunities for recreation.
The Department brings together multiple disciplines to achieve an integrated approach to understanding land resources and the myriad processes that occur in natural and managed landscapes. We strive to synthesize knowledge into comprehensive and useful summaries for instructional, scientific, and practical uses.
