Dr. Arbindra Rimal, Missouri State University professor of agriculture, received a half-million dollar grant through the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture. The grant focuses on education about food security and is a joint project with five universities in Missouri.
The objectives of this project are to digitally share resources and provide field courses and internships among partnering institutions, establish a seamless transfer process allowing students to transition from a two-year to a four-year institution, encourage undergraduate agricultural students to continue their education to advanced degrees, and develop outreach programs for agricultural students and the community.
Maroon Minutes highlight Missouri State University’s points of pride: the accomplishments of our faculty, staff, students and supporters. Each Maroon Minute first airs during a home football or basketball game.
