Community and Regional Development

Community and Regional Development

Students are encouraged to use the flexible track options to develop a field of specialization that is suited to their needs and their visions of the future for themselves and society. We encourage a diverse student body in terms of background, interests, and career paths. However, they should be self-starters who have a vision of where they are going. Students are encouraged to be involved in the campus and their community.

Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems

Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems

Students majoring in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems (SA&FS) focus on the social, economic and environmental aspects of food and agriculture - from farm to table and beyond.  The program is designed to help students obtain a diversity of knowledge and skills, both in the classroom and through personal experiences both on and off campus.
