Description

Many of us involved in enrollment management in University Education in Natural Resources have experienced declines in undergraduate enrollment and face challenges in recruiting students from underrepresented groups. At the same time local, state, and federal natural resources-related agencies tell us that in the next 5-10 years demand for our graduates will be the greatest it has been in 30 years. Furthermore, these agencies expect to hire a diverse workforce. Is there something wrong with this picture? Are there things we can do as a group to meet our own enrollment goals and the goals of the agencies and corporations?
