Support the Center for Grassland Studies

Support the Center for Grassland Studies

The Center for Grassland Studies in the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln was established in 1994. The Center's mission is to coordinate and assist with implementation of multidisciplinary research, educational and service programs that emphasize the importance of grasses, grasslands and associated programs in food, feed, fiber and renewable fuel production as well as their aesthetic, recreational and conservation values.

The Center offers two multidisciplinary undergraduate majors: Grazing Livestock Systems and the accredited PGA Golf Management. A multidisciplinary seminar is offered during the fall semester and attended by students (for credit or non-credit), faculty and the public.

The Center coordinates faculty and staff efforts in grasses and grasslands as they relate to the improvement and management of forage, range and turfgrasses, ruminant livestock systems, production economics, grassland, riparian and wetlands ecology, wildlife management and conservation biology, watershed management, grassland insects and diseases, basic research and educational programs. The Center's staff works closely with the Professional Golfers' Association of America (PGA) in administrating the PGA Golf Management major.
