New departments formed
Two departments of Texas A&M University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences have been restructured to better serve students, Texas landowners and the public in addressing regional, national and global environmental and natural resource opportunities and challenges.
Through this restructuring, Texas A&M AgriLife is recommitting to supporting our most precious resource — our natural environment — through 21st century education, research and extension to all Texans, said Patrick Stover, Ph.D., vice chancellor of Texas A&M AgriLife, dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and director of Texas A&M AgriLife Research.
“These departments have been restructured and positioned to be global leaders in advancing the science of ecology and its application to better prepare students for employment opportunities and to more effectively provide support in addressing natural resource challenges throughout the state, region, nation and world,” Stover said. “This further cements our commitment to wildlife, range, fisheries and forestry in the state of Texas.”
