The School of Natural Resources Community Engagement Committee is accepting requests from any SNR group planning outreach activities in need of help purchasing promotional materials, including copies, flyers and signs.
In 2017, the committee shifted from utilizing available funds for two annual outreach events to instead focusing on supporting outreach efforts from professors, staff or centers within.
The School of Natural Resources regularly engages with the community through activities & public speakers.

National Drought Mitigation Center former director Mike Hayes and Director Mark Svoboda, both at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln School of Natural Resources, contributed to the chapter dedicated to drought.
