The position is a 9-month appointment and has responsibilities in teaching, research, and service (a standard appointment is 45%, 45%, and 10%, respectively).

The NREM207 Outdoor Skills Weekend (OSW) is based off of the popular national program, Conservation Leaders for Tomorrow. The NREM207 Outdoor Skills Weekend is aimed at undergraduates in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, especially Forestry and Animal Ecology majors in our department who might have little or no experience recreating and/or working outdoors.
Here is a glimpse into the real-life NREM adventure of Mario Pagni, spring 2014 Summa Cum Laude ISU graduate with double majors in Forestry and Public Service & Administration.
In early November, fourteen students from the ISU Forestry Club/Society of American Foresters Student Chapter attended the Society of American Foresters Annual Convention in Madison Wisconsin. Their attendance was facilitated by support from NREM, along with the Dean and Ann Einspahr Travel Fund.
