The Natural Resource Policy Center was established in 2005 through funding provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Center’s purpose is to utilize a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, and multi-functional approach to help solve natural resource issues in the southeastern United States. The Center seeks to provide a framework that fosters cooperation across both disciplines and institutions.

The Center strives to achieve this broad mission by pursuing the following four primary objectives:

  • Conduct Scientific Analysis
  • Collect and Disseminate Information
  • Contribute to the Policy Process
  • Participate in Leadership Development and Capacity Building
