ASU and MCC team up with USDA research service to expand agriculture education
Fulton Schools and Mesa Community College students are teaming with a U.S. Department of Agriculture research center to promote education in sustainable agriculture. They’re aiding in development of agricultural research techniques that can be applied in the lab and in hands-on field work. An undergraduate course to be offered as part of the project is expected to begin in the 2020 spring semester. The venture may provide impetus for developing more concentrated studies of food systems and related agricultural subjects at ASU, says Rebecca Muenich, an assistant professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment.
