Natural Resources Conflict Resolution

The Center manages the university’s trans-disciplinary program on Natural Resource Conflict Resolution (NRCR).

This is the only graduate-level program in the nation specifically designed to provide students with a working knowledge of the theory and practice of preventing and resolving conflict related to land use, natural resources, and environmental quality.

The program is co-sponsored by the School of Business Administration, College of Forestry and Conservation, School of Law, and College of Arts and Sciences. Students and faculty from at least ten different disciplines regularly participate in courses and experiential projects.
