The Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS) Board of Directors recently named Timothy Randhir, a professor in the College of Natural Sciences’s Department of Environmental Conservation, as a 2024 recipient of the SWCS Fellow Award. Each year, SWCS gives this lifetime achievement award to a few recipients who have demonstrated a commitment to research and innovation in this important area of study.

The SWCS is an international organization aimed at professionals who practice and advance the science and art of natural resource conservation. The designation of “Fellow” is conferred on Society members who “have performed exceptional service in advocating the conservation of soil, water, and related natural resources.” This award is given for professional excellence, which may be reflected through practicing, investigating, administering, or teaching soil and water conservation or closely related fields.

“SWCS is the leader in soil and water conservation efforts around the world,” said Randhir. “I am honored to be recognized by this leading professional society.”

Randhir has been invited to accept this award at the 79th SWCS International Annual Conference, taking place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina this July.
