USU’s Janet Quinney Lawson Institute for Land, Water, and Air just celebrated its first year with the release of a second report to Utah’s governor and policymakers. The institute is an interdisciplinary initiative designed by President Noelle Cockett and seeks to bring USU researchers focused on Utah’s natural resource challenges together with state, county, and city governments. The institute and College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences welcomed alumnus Brian Steed as the institute’s director and a member of the Department of Applied Economics’ faculty. More than a dozen CAAS faculty members contributed to the report, which is available to view online.
