CALS faculty and staff with an interest in the Dairy Innovation Hub are encouraged to attend one of two upcoming college-wide discussions. These sessions are an opportunity to discuss plans and priorities for how the $4M in funding coming to CALS will be invested in the coming years.
The two sessions are:
- Tuesday, November 12 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. in 2321 DeLuca Biochemical Sciences Building (440 Henry Mall)
- Monday, December 2 from 1 – 4 p.m. in the Steenbock Library Biocommons (550 Babcock Drive)
Light refreshments will be provided.
Please RSVP here by the end of the day on Thursday, November 7.
Sessions will be led by dairy science associate professor Heather White, the faculty director for the Dairy Innovation Hub. Before assuming the role of faculty director, Heather had been serving as Dean Kate VandenBosch’s special assistant for dairy innovation.
Broadly, the funding approved by the Joint Finance Committee will support research personnel (faculty, postdocs and graduate students), equipment, farms and labs in four areas related to dairy that each span many academic disciplines:
- Stewarding land and water resources
- Enriching human health and nutrition
- Ensuring animal health and welfare
- Growing farm businesses and communities
