The MWSU student chapter of The Wildlife Society has been recognized as the North Central Section Student Chapter of the Year for 2021. This is the highest award given at the section level.
The North-Central section of The Wildlife Society is one of eight sections in North America (including Canada and Mexico, but also Guam and Puerto Rico). The North-Central section includes eight states each of which has a state chapter of TWS. Within each state, there are one or more student chapters of TWS (indicated in parentheses with each state): Illinois (3), Indiana (2), Iowa (1), Michigan (4), Minnesota (4), Missouri (6), Ohio (2), and Wisconsin (2).
The MWSU student chapter of TWS competed against a total of 23 student chapters in the North-Central section, including student chapters at some of the most prestigious, largest, and oldest wildlife schools in the world (such as University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point where the first wildlife program was founded).
MWSU’s student chapter of TWS has been recognized as the North-Central Section Student Chapter of the Year eight times, and the International Student Chapter of the Year three times since the chapter was created in 2002.
