  • About: Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management
    the initiating institution when this innovative program began to function in the mid 1930s During the intervening years each program went through an evolution first being a part of established departments such as horticulture and zoology and then coming into full departmental status in their own right as both areas continued to evolve During this time both departments were busy with the training of students many of who went on to have successful careers and to take on significant leadership roles in government industry and academia And while each program has been successful the natural resources arena has undergone a number of changes during this same time frame and it has become increasing clear that a new approach is needed if we are continue to be successful It is on this foundation of collective success and individual accomplishment that we will continue to build to meet the challenges of a new era Where we are going So where do we hope to be when this decade comes to a close First we want to continue to be preferred providers of fisheries forestry and wildlife managers as well as top flight wood scientists Over the two years leading up to the formation of the department faculty and staff devoted hundreds of hours of thought and discussion to the formulation of a vision of the new department and its goals These visions and goals have now been formalized into a departmental strategic plan that will guide this process Quoting from that document The Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management is dedicated to the understanding effective management and sustainable use of our renewable natural resources through the land grant missions of teaching research and extension NREM s disciplinary focus is broad in scope ranging from individual organisms to landscapes from natural to managed ecosystems from wilderness to agricultural and urban systems from local to international environments and from resource preservation to utilization Understanding and effectively managing our natural resources requires long term vision and multidisciplinary approaches involving NREM personnel working with people from other diverse disciplines across the university and within federal and state agencies and non governmental organizations NREM reflects a diversity of disciplines including ecology and other biological sciences social science economics sustainable resource management and utilization and human dimensions NREM serves society through the land grant tradition of working with undergraduate and graduate students state and federal government agencies non governmental organizations businesses and the public In order to act on our vision we have formulated a number of goals at the Department level These goals are aligned and complementary to goals established at the University and College level Again extracting from the strategic plan the following goals have been established at the University College and Departmental levels University goals The University s strategic plan cites three goals that will assist Iowa State in becoming the best at achieving the land grant mission All three goals relate directly or indirectly to the goals and plans of NREM for continued
