All international components of the College of Natural Resources, including the International Resource Management minor, the Peace Corps Master's International Program, and several travel-study programs abroad contribute to the "internationalization" of students, faculty, and staff by:
- Promoting awareness and knowledge of environmental issues of global concern, especially in the context of sustainable natural resource management.
- Promoting awareness and understanding of global ecosystems and human interactions with those ecosystems.
- Enhancing interest in foreign languages and appreciation of cultural diversity.
- Preparing for employment and volunteer opportunities abroad
