Student Programs

One of MISA’s goals is to facilitate the internalization of sustainable agriculture into the University so that the concepts permeate teaching, research and extension. To that end, MISA supports programs that provide students with the opportunity to interact with faculty involved in sustainable agriculture research; with practitioners who are applying sustainable principles on their farms; with organizations and agencies that work on myriad aspects of sustainability in agriculture.

We encourage students to take advantage of these opportunities to learn through coursework, discuss issues at the WUSA seminars, conduct research, connect with people active in the field, and get their own hands dirty on a farm internship or at the Student Organic Farm!
