From working to alleviate poverty to making strides toward global food security, CANR researchers are showing that Spartans have what it takes to make a difference.
Four CANR faculty members and one alumnus were recognized on March 23 during the 2016 International Awards Ceremony for the outstanding contributions their work at MSU is making toward resolving some of the world’s most pressing challenges. The event is hosted annually by MSU’s International Studies Program (ISP). The following CANR individuals were recognized:
Michigan State University has been awarded $4.4 million from the U.S. Agency for International Development in Mali to strengthen the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy and its efforts to battle hunger, reduce poverty and improve nutrition through better food policy in Mali. The grant supports USAID’s work under Feed the Future, the U.S. government’s global hunger and food security initiative.
Three CANR students are among 10 Spartans planning to attend the Clinton Global Initiative University annual meeting in California next month based on their ambitious plans to address areas such as education, poverty and the environment.
