A commitment to sustainability as an environmental imperative as well as a sound business strategy is the foundational strength of the College of Natural Resources and Environment at Virginia Tech. The concept of sustainability continues to move into the global mainstream culture and is a passion of the young people who come to the college.
Advancing the science of sustainability, the college’s brand promise, is a position of great potential — relevant to the university, the state, the country, and the world; relevant to landowners, businesses, and industry; and relevant to our students, their future careers, and their ability to sustain quality of life on Earth.
The College of Natural Resources and Environment is about the things people value — water, trees, forests, fish, wildlife, renewable materials, and physical and cultural environments. Our rich heritage in these disciplines, as well as our proven accomplishment and leadership, position us at the foundation of sustainability.
We are developing the next generation of foresters, land managers, biologists, geographers, biomaterials experts, scientists, and leaders.
Our responsibility to society, our students, and the environment is to look forward.
The College of Natural Resources and Environment is more relevant than at any time in the past, and we are moving forward. We invite you to be a part of our future.
