Dean McPheron speaks on international agriculture

CFAES Dean Bruce McPheron addressed 28 members of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities' (APLU) International Agriculture Section on Feb. 7 during the group's first online webinar. 

As the current chair of APLU's Board on Agricultural Assembly, Dean McPheron elaborated on the various ways that the directors of international agriculture program offices can proactively engage faculty and administrators on their own campuses to raise the profile of international agriculture.

Mark Erbaugh, director of CFAES's Office of International Programs in Agriculture, currently serves as chair of APLU's International Agriculture Section and invited Dean McPheron to speak to the group, adding that his comments provided a way forward for the participants from 18 different U.S. land-grant universities.
