Program:

Students- Have YOUR say about YOUR Education

  • Shape future learning opportunities in economically, environmentally and socially sustainable agriculture in your Faculty.
  • What can we do in 1, 2 or 5 years that will better prepare graduates like you to be sustainability champions and practitioners in their future careers in agriculture?

  • How are three prominent past UofM Aggies applying sustainable production practices on their farms and in their off-farm pursuits?
  • Hindsight 20:20. Based on what they know now, what skills and experiences in the realm of sustainability do they think are necessary for today’s graduates?
