The University of Colorado law school is renaming its natural resources law center in honor of David Getches and Charles Wilkinson. The center will now be known as the "Getches-Wilkinson Center for Natural Resources, Energy, and the Environment." Concurrent with this name change, the Center is also conducting a search for an Executive Director.
According to a post from Mark Holland, the Getches-Wilkinson Center will endeavor to "serve the people of the American West, the nation, and the world through creative, interdisciplinary research, bold, inclusive teaching and innovative problem solving in order to further true sustainability for our use of the lands, waters, and environment. Major programs and initiatives focus on natural resources, water and public lands issues in Colorado and the West; energy and environmental security in the developing world; electricity regulation and energy policy; climate change law and policy; and native communities and environmental justice."
The Executive Director will have a number of responsibilities. These include leading "the Center's fundraising and external relations efforts, oversee the day-to-day programmatic and administrative functions of the Center, serve as the primary point of contact for internal relations with other law school and University units, provide support for the Center's academic and research programs, and, if appropriate, develop his/her own research program and/or teaching."
