Support the Legacy of Dick Skok

Richard A. “Dick” Skok passed away in September 2018. As former dean of the College of Forestry and the College of Natural Resources, Dick led the college for 18 years as dean. Dick was a strong supporter of graduate education, and, in his retirement, he established a fund to support programming for students to enhance their leadership capabilities in the field of renewable natural resource policy. The fund is used to provide fellowship support for graduate students advised or co-advised by Forest Resources’ faculty whose research focuses on important economic or policy questions regarding renewable natural resource use and management. Dick Skok
