Members of the Young Alumni Academy Visit IANR and Learn About Feeding the World


Young Alumni Academy members took a behind-the-scenes look last week at the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources on East Campus. The Nov. 15 event was the second in an eight-month series for the inaugural YAA class. They visited with Vice Chancellor Ronnie Green and his staff to learn about initiatives on East Campus and at the IANR.

The young alumni also had the privilege of hearing an exclusive presentation from the November Heuermann Lecturer, Catherine Bertini, on "Where America Must Lead: Ensuring the World Can Feed its People." Bertini was named the 2003 World Food Prize Laureate for her leadership at the United Nations World Food Programme in ending famine and decreasing hunger.  She is currently a professor of Public Administration and International Relations at Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University, and co-chair of the Global Agricultural Development Initiative of The Chicago Council of Global Affairs.

YAA members will return to campus next month to learn more about the Nebraska Athletic Department.
