      • From the Dean's Perspective

        The year 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the College of Natural Resources and Environment. I hope you will join us for our celebration on campus in the fall. We will commemorate not only the formation of the college but also our long history at Virginia Tech and the evolution of our program over time.
