UC ANR Statewide Conference: California roots, global reach

For nearly 100 years the UC ANR community has catalyzed change by harnessing the power of scientific research to solve local issues, improve agricultural production and protect our natural resources. Our ability to continue this work for another 100 years depends on how we understand and address the critical issues facing our communities in the coming years.
The statewide conference is intended primarily for UC employees, but the first day of the conference, the Global Food Systems Forum is open to the general public.
This conference will open on April 9 with broad and provocative discussions on global agricultural, natural and human resource issues. On April 10–11, we will focus on ANR programs and forward-looking ideas that will enable ANR to continue as a leader in research and extension. We will reflect on our Strategic Vision and examine how our Initiative process has worked over the last four years. We will also think about what it means to be the Land Grant University for California; how our AES faculty and Cooperative Extension advisors and specialists share a 150-year-old mission, and consider opportunities for looking forward.
