EDUCATION IN NATURAL RESOURCES, PROCEEDINGS AND RELATED PAPERS FROM A SEMINAR SERIES AT COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY 1963-64.
FOSS, PHILLIP O.
REPORTED ARE THE SEMINAR PAPERS AND PROCEEDINGS OF A CONFERENCE WHICH INVESTIGATED THE FIELD OF NATURAL RESOURCES AND MADE RECOMMENDATIONS ON THE COURSE AND DIRECTION OF NATURAL RESOURCES STUDY AT THE COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY LEVEL. THE CONFERENCE AND SEMINARS HELD AT COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY DURING 1963-64 GAVE PARTICIPATING FACULTY MEMBERS AN OPPORTUNITY TO DRAW UPON THE IDEAS AND EXPERIENCE OF KNOWLEDGEABLE PERSONS ENGAGED IN THE STUDY AND PRACTICE OF RESOURCES MANAGEMENT. PART 1 IS A COMPENDIUM OF A CONFERENCE, "TRAINING IN NATURAL RESOURCES FOR GOVERNMENTAL PERSONNEL," ATTENDED BY REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE VARIOUS UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENTS AND FROM STATE AND FEDERAL AGENCIES. PARTS 2-5 RELATE THE TEXTS OF SEMINAR PAPERS, PRESENTED BY RECOGNIZED AUTHORITIES WHO DISCUSSED PROVISIONS FOR DEVELOPING TRAINED, PROFESSIONAL PERSONNEL IN THE NUMEROUS FIELDS OF NATURAL RESOURCES. UNANIMITY WAS NOT PRESENT FOR ALL ISSUES. HOWEVER, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT (1) AN UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM IN NATURAL RESOURCES IS DEFENSIBLE AND MAY BE DESIRABLE AS A "GENERAL EDUCATION" OR "LIBERAL ARTS" TYPE PROGRAM, (2) MOST PRESENT UNIVERSITY PROGRAMS ARE INADEQUATE IN PROVIDING NECESSARY TRAINING FOR RESOURCE MANAGERS, (3) A SPLIT-MAJOR MIGHT BE AN ANSWER TO THE PROBLEM POSED IN ITEM 2, (4) THERE IS A NEED FOR REVISION OF THE GRADUATE PROGRAM (SUGGESTED REVISIONS ARE INCLUDED), (5) INCREASED EXCHANGES OF PERSONNEL BETWEEN RESOURCE ORGANIZATIONS AND THE UNIVERSITY WOULD BE DESIRABLE, AND (6) THERE SHOULD BE BETTER COORDINATION OF RESEARCH BETWEEN THE UNIVERSITIES AND COOPERATING AGENCIES.
