Patrick Market was recently named the director of the School of Natural Resources in the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. Market, who has spent his entire professional career at MU, was hired in 1999 and has served as the interim director of the school since January 2019.
“I look forward to the challenge of leading one of the premier schools of natural resources,” Market said. “Missouri, and the world, face a spectrum of conservation and natural resource issues, including wildland fires, chronic wasting disease, sustainable water resources, the preservation and protection of our state and national parks, long-term soil health and droughts and floods. The School of Natural Resources hosts the faculty, staff and centers to address these complex problems, while also training the next generation of professionals to carry on the work.”
