Master of Natural Resources - Global

By 2050, the world will be a fundamentally different place. Sustainability and natural resource management professionals will need to be able to work across scales, disciplines, and sectors to understand and operate within a rapidly changing context.  The Center for Leadership in Global Sustainability is committed to building leadership for this future.  CLiGS is building a portfolio of global programs to explore and help advance sustainable development strategies in rapidly urbanizing regions around the world.  MNR students have an opportunity to participate in these programs and projects by enrolling in a CLiGS Global Project study abroad course (NR 5954) for three (3) credits.
