Together, we are a force for positive change
The College of Natural Resources and Environment is the No. 1 ranked place to study natural resources and conservation in the U.S. — and we’re ready to make our footprint even bigger with your help.
Wherever there are big, complex issues involving natural resources and the environment, we are there. CNRE faculty and students are placing sensors on mountaintops that can warn of flash floods. Testing sustainable packaging materials in one of the leading labs in the U.S. Conducting research that is critical to managing fisheries and preserving endangered birds, mussels, and other species. Studying the forests that cover two-thirds of Virginia and one-third of the Earth and play a vital role in climate change and clean water, and provide the lumber, fiber, and biofuels that we depend on worldwide.
The College of Natural Resources and Environment shows up. And so do our donors.
