We apply our expertise to meet the needs of Minnesota, the country, and the world. Our faculty, staff, and students engage individuals, businesses, and organizations to provide science-based solutions and recommendations that make a difference for the benefit of all of our communities.
Explore, understand and conserve the natural landscape. Through our education, volunteer and community science programs, people can become stewards of Minnesota’s public and private lands. SWAC researchers contribute to climate change, environmental education, and other resources.
Take control of crop success with unbiased crop research, publications and news from University of Minnesota Extension. SWAC researchers contribute to soil and water, nutrient management, and other resources.
We depend on clean water for drinking, recreation and irrigation. Fish and wildlife also depend on clean water. SWAC researchers contribute to agriculture and water, stormwater, watersheds, and other resources.
