2019 Year In Review
2019 was a strong year for Purdue’s Department of Forestry and Natural Resources (FNR), from breakthroughs in research to its national presence in publications and in presentation settings to the success of alumni and much more.
With 36 faculty members, 57 staff members and 280 students, Purdue FNR made an impact on the natural resources community through its work, its involvement in national and international organizations and through its six allied research centers.
The department also made an impact on the global community by sending 66 graduates out into the world, conferring 47 undergraduate degrees, 12 master’s degrees and seven doctoral degrees.
“2019 was another banner year for the department,” Bob Wagner, Professor and Department Head of FNR, said. “Our efforts to increase undergraduate enrollments have been a great success with a 26 percent increase over the past two years. Sponsored research funding research $6 million this year and our extension activities also were quite impressive.”
