Public Involvement and Dispute Resolution Courses in Natural Resources Schools
In a survey of SAF-accredited natural resources schools, 36 of 40 educators said natural resource professionals need more training in public involvement and dispute resolution, and 96 percent of respondents said such training was important" or "essential." Despite budgetary and staff constraints, the number of SAF-accredited schools offering specific courses in these topics has grown dramatically, from a reported three in 1992 to 15 in 1997. At most schools, these topics also have been incorporated into already-required courses on policy, planning, and management. The authors describe a model course in public involvement and conflict resolution and list resources for educators.
