Following an intensive five-year program of curriculum review and strategic planning, the College of Natural Resources (CNR) at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP) has initiated a planned six-year revision of its undergraduate curricula in natural resource management. It is our belief that such revision is necessary for our graduates to have the attributes and capabilities necessary to meet the future challenges of long-term, landscape scale, ecosystem management planning. To meet these challenges, significant change is needed in the pedagogical and technological infrastructure of undergraduate natural resource education. The goal of this revision is to develop programs that will prepare young professionals to comprehend and apply sound interdisciplinary approaches to solving resource management problems, now and in the future, while at the same time providing the technical competencies required by the vast array of employers of our graduates.
