The Duke Forest Advisory Committee consists of faculty members and administrators from a cross-section of disciplines across the University.  The committee provides advice and direction both in general terms for the Forest’s future and with reference to specific problems and issues.  The committee is chaired by the dean of the Nicholas School of the Environment and meets on an irregular basis, normally at the request of the Forest Director.
