Making a Difference

Bolstered by an exceptional education and valuable real-world experiences, College of Natural Resources alumni leave our halls ready to work hard to drive innovation and tackle global challenges that affect us all. They are leading the way in fields like sustainability and conservation, paper science, recreation and tourism, public policy, business, law and environmental science.

Our alumni go far, but many also stay near. They are making North Carolina a better home for all its residents by driving three of the state’s top five industries: forestry, wood products, and tourism and golf.

Junior Haley Jenkins is passionate about being a part of the solution for climate change.

"I have a passion for science and it’s very important to me to see that the natural resources I encounter every day have successful futures." —@haley.jenkiins 

Over the summer, Hailey, who is majoring in sustainable materials and technology (@ncstatefb), served as an undergraduate research assistant with the wood science and engineering program at @oregonstate. While there, Jenkins assisted in testing a species of wood from Japan to ensure its potential usage in residential and housing applications.
