Outreach and Continuing Education

ForestCE News

During Autumn 2000, the College of Forest Resources sponsored or co-sponsored conferences, symposia, and showcases in order to communicate with its many stakeholders about the issues facing natural resource managers. A top priority for UW President Richard McCormick and a strategic CFR target, bridging the boundaries between the University and the larger community includes providing a forum for timely, and possibly controversial, issues and participating in conferences where research, policy, and technical transfer questions are addressed. Both students and faculty want to connect their work with the world outside and the community, in turn, has legitimate claims on the institution's knowledge and assistance. Throughout this newsletter, watch for stories and short items that describe some of these outreach events in which the College participated or played a leading role.
