The Lund Fellows Program and Community Food Systems minor both offer students the opportunity for an engaged learning experience in agriculture and food systems. This course is designed to help students prepare for their engaged experiences with non-Cornell partner organizations. This seven-week course will maximize student engaged learning by utilizing the following learning topics: (1) understand the community and geographic area of your host organization; (2) develop personal and professional goals (3) explore critical reflection and how it can be applied to engaged experiences; (4) review relevant health and safety topics; (5) gain a deeper understating of agriculture and food systems through readings, other media and discussion. The course aims to build a sense of community through peer learning among the students who will be sharing similar summer experiences as well as ensure all internship and practicum logistics are completed.  

When Offered Spring.
