Welcome to the BEST Region!

BEST (Biological, Environmental, Science & Technology) serves the College of Natural Resources, the Division of Biological Sciences in the College of Letters and Science, and related ORUs, museums, and field stations in the biological sciences. We are extremely proud of the team we have put together and are working hard to provide faculty, staff, and students in our region with expert advice and reliable support services that foster academic and professional success. 

Our aim is to build an administrative support team that is 100% committed to you. Over time, BEST team members are determined to become familiar with the unique issues, terminology, funders, sponsors, vendors, and circumstances in the biological sciences that will enable us to provide service that you'll find responsive, meaningful, and relevant. 

Our success in the BEST region depends on your open and honest feedback. Naturally, we want to hear when we help you succeed; but, more importantly, we welcome feedback on how we can improve our service and innovate our approach. 

We encourage you to reach out and tell us how we can BEST support you!
