Forum: Perceptions of the 2007 international symposium on society and resource management student forum

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The International Symposium on Society and Resource Management (ISSRM) is the official meeting of the International Association for Society and Natural Resources (IASNR), and is the largest international gathering of researchers and practitioners interested in the application of social science to environmental and natural resource issues. While a primary goal of ISSRM and IASNR is the development and exchange of information, an important secondary goal is professional development, particularly as this applies to graduate students. To further this latter goal, a Student Forum was organized and conducted at the 13th ISSRM in Park City, UT. This article reports the findings of a survey of Student Forum participants conducted to evaluate the session. Data on graduate student participation and participants, importance-performance analysis of the programmatic components of the forum, and measures of social capital generated by the forum suggest that the Student Forum was successful and should be continued.
