Sul Ross State University (Alpine, Texas) will offer a new degree program in sustainable ranch management, through a $1.2 million endowment from the Dixon Water Foundation of Marfa and Decatur. The endowment establishes the Clint Josey Endowed Chair for Sustainable Ranch Management in the College of Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences. Through $200,000 annual increments over a six-year period, the foundation’s gift will fund the creation of both a B.S. degree and a certificate program in sustainable ranch management, as well as a permanent endowment.
