An introduction and overview of the factors that influence natural resource conservation and management on Department of Defense lands within a temporal, geographic, and environmental context and perspective. Students will gain knowledge of natural resource management and military land sustainability by reviewing (1) military land uses and training/test requirements, (2) major policies/laws impacting training/testing activities on DoD lands, and (3) planning approaches to military sustainability.

The military in North Carolina are the number two industry in the state but are being threatened by unplanned development and the encroachment of incompatible land uses. This course will serve as the keystone course in a Graduate Certificate in Military Land Sustainability teaching its students of the issues the military faces in regards to emerging training restrictions and the strategies available to mitigate these issues. There is no course at NCSU that touches on this paradigm and is the reason we need to develop this course.

College of Agriculture and Life SciencesDr. John DoleI have emailed Dr. John Dole to see if there is any overlap in courses offered in CALS. He responded: I agree that this course does not duplicate any of the courses in CALS. I see a few individual topics that overlap with some similar topics in a few CALS courses, but you are coming at them from a different perspective and I don't see a problem here.
This course will be taught as part of a current workload. No additional resources are being requested.

This course is intended to familiarize students with the major conservation, development, and management factors that have an impact on and around Department of Defense lands. Students will gain knowledge of (a) military land management, by reviewing military land uses and training/test requirements, (b) laws and regulations that impact training and testing on DoD lands, and (c) management strategies that are sustainable.


Student Learning Outcomes

At the completion of this course students will 1) describe military land acquisition history and the influence of past management practices, 2) identify major policies and laws impacting military land use and areas critical to mission sustainment, and 3) identify management strategies that will achieve goals for applicable policies and achieve natural resource management goals while sustaining training capability for installations and ranges.

ABGS Reviewer Comments:
-Student learning outcome "3) examine management strategies important for sustaining installations and ranges." is a very vague outcome. Any one, with our without graduate education, can "examine a strategy". Say something more concrete than this - do you want them to be able to formulate a policy that is enforceable and measurable and that successfully balances all the competing factors of concern to the military? Or to analyze a policy proposal to see if it is enforceable and measurable and balances etc etc? Something else?
