Geological Survey Launches 42nd Collaborative Research Unit

Michigan State University will host the newest fish and wildlife unit in the Cooperative Research program.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) announced the establishment of a new Cooperative Research Unit (CRU) hosted by Michigan State University. The CRU program partners with local governments and universities to promote graduate-level education in wildlife sciences while conducting important research into American ecology. The addition of Michigan State University to the program marks the 42nd unit added to CRU since it was founded in 1935.

“We are delighted to welcome the new Michigan Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit to the CRU family,” said USGS Cooperative Research Unit Chief Jonathan Mawdsley. “We look forward to working with all of our cooperators to deliver world-class scientific research, graduate student training, and technical assistance to our partners in Michigan.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For USGS Chief Mawdsley as he oversees the CRU program.
  • For wisdom for Director Martha Williams as she heads the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services.
  • For Assistant Secretary Shannon Estenoz as she leads the Fish and Wildlife and Parks agency within the Interior Department.
