Turfgrass education and recruiting for the future

Enrollment in turfgrass science at colleges and universities has seen a decline in the past 10 to 15 years. In a survey conducted by Golf Course Management magazine, 40 schools were asked about turfgrass program enrollment. 70% have encountered lower enrollment compared to 10 years ago. STMA’s Turfgrass Education Council has created a white paper to discuss various options for colleges and universities to implement to help attract students to turfgrass science as a career option.
