The Forestry Executive Committee (FEC) meetings are open to all students, faculty and staff, and we welcome your participation. FEC is intended to provide the dean with a) diverse perspectives on the administration and management of the College; b) a conduit outward to faculty, students, and staff regarding the administration of the College; and c) connection to the active committees of the College.
