The Center for Regional Food Systems – as part of its continuing work at the intersection of food systems and racial equity and pluralism - is interested in lifting examples of collaborations across land-grant institutions and between land-grants and public/private higher education institutions that are pluralistic in nature and built on trust and shared values.
This webinar features examples from Michigan and Texas. The Texas example is a collaboration between Prairie View A&M University's Cooperative Extension Program (an 1890 land-grant institution) and Baylor College of Medicine (a private institution). The Michigan example is a collaboration across Michigan State University Extension and three 1994 land-grant Tribal Colleges - Bay Mills, Saginaw Chippewa, and Keweenaw Bay.
Funding for the Racial Equity in the System Workgroup is provided in part by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
