Alumni & Friends

Welcome

Welcome to the School of Natural Resources Alumni and Friends page! While the School itself is young, formed in 2003, the departments that came together to be a part of the School have a rich history and tradition in the University dating back over 100 years.

Whether you are a graduate from one of our programs or someone interested in natural resources, we greatly appreciate your interest and support as we strive to be an international leader in natural resources education and provide natural resources information to those both in Nebraska and around the world.

From drilling into the soil and groundwater below the surface, to conserving and sustaining the flora and fauna on the surface, to studying the climatological aspects of the atmosphere around us, to humans interacting with it all, we really do encompass “From Earth to Sky and Everything in Between.”
