Our people are at the core of what makes the College of Natural Resources great. Here, faculty know all their students' names, staff mentor students from application to graduation and students enjoy the close-knit environment of a small college with all the advantages of a large research university.

Beyond creating an environment where young people thrive, our people are the reason we’re the go-to place for natural resource solutions. The college’s award-winning faculty work alongside students to generate new knowledge and technology, leverage interdisciplinary partnerships, engage industries and communities, and provide professional leadership for the future. We’re proud to be the home of faculty who are international leaders in their disciplines.

Experts in our extension and outreach units are in the field every day working with business, industry, government, nonprofits, communities and citizens across North Carolina to provide programs and services that foster healthy communities and economies. Stationed throughout North Carolina, these professionals support three of the state’s top industries: forestry, wood products and tourism.
