CALS Sustainability Symposium

April 13, 2017, Scheman Building, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa

The day’s activities at Scheman Building will begin at 9 a.m. with a presentation by Catherine Woteki, former under secretary of the USDA’s Research, Education and Economics mission area and its chief scientist, about sustainability efforts at the federal level.

Catherine Woteki, a past CALS dean, will speak about the federal government’s sustainability efforts. There also will be a poster session and panel discussions about sustainability in the college.

The symposium is being organized by the CALS Sustainability Task Force. The task force was formed last year to begin a college-wide dialogue on sustainability to consider how the college can focus and more fully engage in sustainability across our research, education and extension and outreach missions.
