College of Agriculture and Natural Resources


Mission statement: The graduate students of the Department of Ecosystem Sciences and Management have formed this group to foster academic interaction and social growth among ESM (entomology, forest, range, soils, watershed, and wildlife) graduate students, faculty, professionals, and the local community.

RenUW provides:

  • Social interaction between students and faculty
  • Graduate student representation to the department and the faculty

  • Opportunities for service projects on campus and in the Laramie Community

Activities and Events:

  • Annual Spring Seminar and free lunch hosted by RenUW featuring Renewable Resources faculty addressing general interest topics.

  • Planning the departmental holiday party
  • Designing a new departmental logo and selling articles of clothing that bear the logo

  • Cooperation with local government agencies to volunteer labor for land management needs
  • Social events including monthly potlucks and other group outings and gatherings (bowling, skiing, camping, on-campus entertainment, etc.)
