Spring 2000 (Volume 1, Number 2)
On February 11, 2000, GW's E&EM program was one of several university environmental and natural resources programs that met to help design RNRF’s new University Affiliate Program and to provide input to the RNRF’s year 2000 Congress on “The Evolving Role of Natural Resource Professionals.” The Renewable Natural Resources Foundation is a federation of 15 professional societies, such as the American Forestry Society, American Water Resources Association, the Wildlife Society and the American Society of Civil Engineers. It owns and operates the 31-acre Grosvenor Estate in Bethesda, Maryland, where the headquarters offices of many of the Foundation’s member organizations are located.
The purposes of the RNRF University Affiliate Program are to (1) link RNRF and educational institutions in order to exchange information, (2) increase participation in professional and educational organizations, and (3) help shape future public policies affecting renewable natural resources by uniting representatives from various disciplines.
Participating in the February 11 meeting were the following officials:
Based on feedback provided by the university representatives, the RNRF has agreed to undertake the following steps as part of its University Affiliate Program initiative:
