CALS goes beyond providing students with exceptional academic programs and opportunities. CALS’ educational mission: to train and inspire the next generation of leaders to affect real change in the world.
As a result, CALS students and alumni are tackling today’s biggest global issues in health, the economy, and the environment. They are fighting poverty through microfinance. Determining the effect of climate change on water quality. Discovering ways to increase the nutritional value of food. Researching insects to decrease the spread of disease. Assessing cancer cell resistance to chemotherapy. They are making a difference.
