The Forces of Change Driving Forestry Education
Abstract:No discussion of forestry education today can ignore the large and powerful forces that are redefining all of higher education--forces that will reshape education in forestry, too. Leaders in academia need to develop strong partnerships with their counterparts in the private and public sector so that forestry schools and colleges can continue to teach the scientific and technical skills that future foresters will need to manage our increasingly valuable forest resources.
