Soil and Water are vital resources in urban, agricultural, and natural ecosystems. The Soil and Water Science Department (SWSD) provides highly visible leadership in teaching, research, and extension/outreach programs as related to improving the productivity of agriculture with environmentally sound management practices, improving water quality, and protection and conservation of natural resources. Our department is one of the few in the nation that offers a comprehensive research and educational programs (molecular to landscape level) involving terrestrial, wetlands and aquatic ecosystems of the landscape. In addition to traditional on-campus educational programs, we use innovative e-technologies to offer educational programs to place-bound students.   Our graduates and postdoctoral fellows are well placed at universities, state and federal agencies, and private industry.
