Giving Opportunities

The William Main Distinguished Visitor Fund


This fund supports visiting lecturers at CNR by providing program support, including salaries, for approximately ten visiting lecturers in forestry and natural resources during each spring semester.

Each lecturer gives a two-hour seminar for graduate and undergraduate students and leads a discussion following a special dinner for students and faculty.

The program is designed to expose students to policy makers and top executives from industry, state, and federal agencies, and other organizations with a focus on major issues. The visitors always include a group of individuals representing the forest products industry.

All gifts to CNR are tax-deductible to the extent of the law.
