Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture, & Community Wellbeing Summer Institute
Sunday, June 4 – Saturday, June 10, 2023
Agriculture is entering a new era! We are developing new approaches and technologies to feed the world as our climate warms and water becomes scarce. We need passionate students like you at the table to develop solutions that support our planet’s and people’s health.
Learn from world-class scientists with cutting-edge expertise how biology and technology can be combined for sustainable agriculture. From plants and insects to water and land use, health and nutrition, to drones and DNA, you will gain hands-on experience at research laboratories and visiting field experiments.
This 7-day institute will complement these research experiences with discussions of our values and the needs of our communities to chart a food-secure future for all.
