Greenhouse Users

A Greenhouse User is a member of the faculty, professional staff, or student of the Departments of CPSC, NRES, or affiliated USDA project who is designated on a Project Request Form as the principal researcher, the instructor of a CPSC or NRES course, the advising or cooperating faculty member of a graduate or undergraduate student, or faculty advisor of a CPSC or NRES Department-sponsored student organization. The general responsibilities of greenhouse users are to serve in a leadership role in the planning, coordination, implementation, maintenance, and successful completion of projects conducted within the PCF. It is expected that greenhouse users will interact frequently and directly with PCF staff. Individual faculty members are ultimately responsible for the organization of their students' use of the PCF facilities.
