College Overview

College of Agriculture and Natural Resources

Areas of Distinction

Our areas of distinction include premier programs in the science and economics of reclamation, soils and rangeland management, community economic development including family entrepreneurship, economic impacts of energy development, and a national reputation in wildlife and livestock health research and management. Our student enrollment has grown steadily to its current level of approximately 1,000 students.

The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources regularly leads the University of Wyoming in research dollars awarded per faculty member and is often second institutionally in total research awards. In 2011 the college had 10 new patent disclosures and secured $13.23 million in external research dollars. Two important offshoots of a strong research program include attracting top-level graduate students and offering undergraduates opportunities to work with faculty and participate in research activities.

The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources prides itself on:
  • Individual attention and one-on-one mentoring for all our students
  • Small class sizes
  • Extensive undergraduate research opportunities
  • Robust research program
  • Providing scientifically-based information to the public and industry
  • Training future scientists, producers, and agriculture industry professionals, and
  • Providing educational programs to all Wyoming citizens.

The first study is in the Thunder Basin area. Working with private landowners and federal agencies, he is examining livestock production and prairie dog populations.
