The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is partnering with Milwaukee Tool to drive safer and more productive natural resource management practices. Through the partnership, students in the College of Natural Resources (CNR) will receive access to world-class tools, equipment and training.
Supported by a $1 million tool and equipment endowment through 2030, this partnership will create first-ever opportunities for forestry and natural resource management students, offsetting costs to the students and university. A key component will be ongoing support from Milwaukee Tool in the form of the latest innovations in battery-powered outdoor power equipment, power tools and hand tools.
These tools will be used in various CNR courses throughout the academic year, and the company will service and repair tools as needed. Among the tools are pruning saws, chainsaws, blowers, sprayers and various measuring tools. Milwaukee® will also provide training resources to ensure students safely operate tools.
