Dean, Dick and Mary Lewis Kleberg College of Agriculture, Human Sciences and Natural Resources
Allen Rasmussen is currently the Dean in the College of Agriculture and Human Sciences at Texas A&M University-Kingsville and has a research appointment with the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute. He has worked to help people understand how their management and decisions affect rangeland resources. His extension programs have focused on helping land managers and the public understand how rangelands function and how they can be managed as a system. Often, this entailed getting people together to deal with conflicts over techniques or information so they could make acceptable resource decisions. He has taught courses ranging from prescribed burning to conflict management in natural resources.
