About Us

The PGA Golf Management program at UNL is administratively housed in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) within the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources (IANR). CASNR works closely with the other two colleges involved: Business Administration, and Education and Human Sciences. Guidance and direction are provided by the PGM Advisory Committee comprised of faculty in all three colleges. The Center for Grassland Studies within IANR coordinates the activities and administrative functions of the program.
