Working for the PLPG

The PLPG is an active lab with undergraduate researchers, graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and research associates. Dr. Schultz and the group meet often to support each other, share ideas, and explore new directions. Graduate students from the PLPG have gone on to work as planners for agencies, researchers with non-profits, staff at land trusts and consulting firms, and law students. The PLPG is a great place for students looking to deepen their knowledge of public policy and public administration in a natural resource management context. All of our research is applied and pragmatic, designed to solve real-world problems.
