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. 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 at the Garden, and they conduct research in the Negaunee Institute for Plant Conservation and Action Labs at the Chicago Botanic Garden, as well as at field sites throughout the region and the world.

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