Dean's Welcome

U-Idaho College of Natural Resources Dean, Kurt PregitzerDean Kurt Pregitzer

We share your passion for the outdoors, the natural world, and our nation’s precious ecosystems, and welcome you to the University of Idaho’s College of Natural Resources!

Our graduates are tomorrow’s leaders and our reputation as an outstanding place to study natural resources has been earned over the past 100 years. Our students and faculty research and learn together, in programs that reach across the country and around the world.

Our faculty are deeply engaged, using science to inform decisions about the challenges in our natural world, and are recognized nationally and internationally for both teaching and research. Our alumni are accomplished, finding success in the natural resource professions with international conservation prizes, holding leadership roles with federal and state agencies, and making groundbreaking discoveries while developing new approaches to managing ecosystems. I invite you to join our team of dedicated and talented faculty, accomplished alumni and outstanding students. Together we will create the future of learning, research and doing.

When you come to the College of Natural Resources, you will find a focus on place-based science education. Moscow is conveniently located near Idaho’s mountains, rivers and rangelands, and we immerse students in experiential learning. We boast remote facilities like a research center in the largest wilderness in the lower 48 states and offsite field campuses, in addition to our 10,000-acre experimental forest within 30 minutes of the main campus in Moscow. We train our students to understand the complex relationship of natural resource demands and human dimensions. 

When our students graduate, they go to work. They find jobs in their field of study and are backed by science-based degrees. Come join us.
