International Resource Management.
Schabel, H. G.
The International Resource Management program enables undergraduate students of the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point, College of Natural Resources to complete an academic minor in International Resource Management. The program attempts to alert students and faculty to global environmental issues and their interconnectedness with a variety of human enterprises. The program covers the history, causes, and nature and extent of resource depletion; traditional and innovative mechanisms to correct present trends; and organizational aspects of international development. Students are exposed to a combination of educational experiences such as foreign language training, work or study abroad, and a set of technical and general subjects to prepare them for possible volunteer and work assignments abroad. It is felt that the program meets a growing need for individuals with concern for global environmental issues and skills to deal intellectually and practically with environmental problems. Through cooperation with Partners of the Americas, an effort is being made to connect these educational efforts with actual development activities in Wisconsin's partner state, Nicaragua. (JDD)
