The Range Science Education Council is an organization of representatives from primarily U.S. universities and colleges that offer courses and degrees in rangeland conservation. Our objectives are:
- to promote high standards in the teaching of range management
- to advance the professional ability of range managers and scientists
- to provide a medium for the exchange of ideas and facts among range management schools
- to be a liaison between teaching departments and organizations and agencies in affairs relating to range education and employment standards
- to foster wider understanding of the challenges of range education
The following items were made possible through a USDA NIFA Higher Education Challenge Grant entitled “Repositioning Rangeland Education for a Changing World.” (Award # 2010-38411-21370)
