Current Priorities

Grateful Alumni. Honored Faculty. Friends of Michigan Tech and the College of Forestry and Environmental Science. There are as many unique donors as reasons to pay it forward. It all comes to this: you care deeply about natural resources, and our students being trained as worldwide stewards of the environment. Here, donors can choose what means most to them. Your gift means a great deal to us. Thank you.

 The overall workforce in Natural Resources does not match the overall workforce. For years, women and minorities have been underrepresented in the workforce and in CFRES. Increasing diversity of the student body is a university-wide priority and CFRES continues to offer programs and outreach to improve results in these areas.

Student Activities Fund

 Societies and clubs provide students with professional development opportunities to learn skills they will need in the workforce that aren't necessarily taught in the classroom. For instance, students can network at a conference to learn about career options and build up their network. Being involved on campus helps student retention.
