The Department of Fisheries and Wildlife supports faculty efforts in several centers across campus:
- Boone and Crockett Quantitative Wildlife Center
The mission of the Boone and Crockett Quantitative Wildlife Center is to address the challenges now facing wildlife conservation through innovations in analytical design, and to prepare for future challenges by training the next generation of wildlife scientists and conservation leaders.
- Center for Water Sciences
The mission of The Center for Water Sciences (CWS) at MSU is to advance scientific research and knowledge for understanding, protecting, and restoring water resources and their sustainable use by humans and ecosystems around the Great Lakes and the world.
Center of Advancing Microbial Risk Assessment
The Center for Advancing Microbial Risk Assessment (CAMRA) is an interdisciplinary research center established to develop scientific knowledge on the fate and risk of bioterrorist and other high priority infectious agents.
Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability
Our mission is to develop and maintain a center of excellence that integrates ecology with socioeconomics, demography, and other disciplines for ecological sustainability from local, national, to global scales.
Quantitative Fisheries Center
The Quantitative Fisheries Center came into being in July of 2005. We seek to provide a research, outreach/service and teaching program to (1) build greater capacity within fishery management agencies in quantitative methods; (2) improve quantitative methods for assessing fish stocks; (3) assist agencies to use model-based approaches in decision making; (4) develop a better understanding of fish community and population dynamics.
