Mission

The Center for Agricultural and Natural Resource Policy is located in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of Maryland, College Park.

 

The Center’s purpose is to facilitate policy-relevant applied research and outreach by faculty in the Department and elsewhere in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

 

In pursuit of this purpose, the Center brings visiting scholars to Maryland, sponsors conferences, administers a program of competitive research grants for applied policy topics, and helps coordinate cooperative efforts among faculty members.

 

The primary focus is on policy issues in the state of Maryland, but with interest also in national and international issues.
