A Texas A&M institute dedicated to solving complex natural resource challenges through discovery, engagement, innovation and land stewardship has changed its name but not its mission, according to the institute’s director.
What was formerly the Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources is now the Texas A&M Natural Resources Institute, or NRI.
“One should understand the essentials of an organization’s work and mission by its name,” said Dr. Roel Lopez, director of the institute since 2012. “That’s one of the primary reasons we made the change.”
Through the application of science-based knowledge, AgriLife Extension creates high-quality, relevant continuing education that encourages lasting and effective change.
