Broone and Crockett Professor of Wildlife Conservation

Professor Millspaugh joined the faculty at the University of Montana in 2016 as the Boone and Crockett Professor of Wildlife Conservation. Prior to arriving in Montana, he was a Distinguished Professor (1999-2016) and Interim Director of the School of Natural Resources (2015-2016) at the University of Missouri. He received his Ph.D. at the University of Washington and completed a brief postdoc in the School of Fisheries at the University of Washington. He also has a M.S. in Wildlife Science from South Dakota State University and a B.S. in Environmental and Forest Biology from the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, NY. His goal for the Boone and Crockett Endowed Program in Wildlife Conservation is to build a robust and high caliber research and teaching program around pressing conservation issues that directly impact wildlife policy and management decisions. Pursuing research and teaching with these aims helps assure wise stewardship and application of the best available science, while preparing future conservation leaders for challenges they will face in their careers.
