Partners & Outreach
The Partnership for Ecosystem Research and Management (PERM) began as a formal partnership between Michigan State University and the Fisheries and Wildlife divisions of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR). This partnership was established on Earth Day, April 22, 1993 to enhance the ability of the university and MDNR to work with other stakeholders toward identifying significant ecosystem problems and conducting research toward their solution.
The Boone and Crockett Club—Michigan State University partnership, in collaboration with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, will be the catalyst to bridge the science-policy interface and provide leadership for the conservation of our nation’s wildlife resources, their habitats, and the benefits they provide to society.
MSU AgBioResearch encompasses the work of more than 300 scientists in seven colleges at MSU: Agriculture and Natural Resources, Arts and Letters, Communication Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Natural Science, Social Science and Veterinary Medicine

Since its beginning, Michigan Extension has focused on bringing knowledge-based educational programs to the people of the state to improve their lives and communities. Today, county-based staff members, in concert with on-campus faculty members, serve every county with programming focused on agriculture and natural resources; children, youth and families; and community and economic development.
