Chicago Botanic Garden Partnership

The Program in Plant Biology and Conservation is a partnership between Northwestern University and the Chicago Botanic Garden.

"We cultivate the power of plants to sustain and enrich life"—the mission of the Chicago Botanic Garden—guides the education and training offered through the PhD and MS degree programs, as well as the courses and research opportunities for undergraduates. All of the PhD scientists at the Chicago Botanic Garden serve as adjunct faculty at Northwestern and teach courses and mentor student research. 

Students take classes at Northwestern University and conduct research in the field and at the Plant Science Center at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Northwestern University is located in Evanston, IL, approximately 10 miles south of the Chicago Botanic Garden, which is located in Glencoe, IL.
