Preparing young people for careers in today’s economy demands that the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources incorporate global awareness into our curriculum. To help students better understand the global nature of today’s marketplace and to increase their appreciation of different cultures, the college started the Beyond the Classroom program. This program helps students who want to study abroad, participate in research projects located in another country, or take advantage of faculty-led study tours. The average grant is approximately $1,000.
During the 2013-2014 academic year the college awarded 16 grants. Grants ranged in size from $700 – $1,000. Programs included the formal exchange program with Ecole Supérieure d’Agriculture in Angers, France to a look at modern culture in Japan. Other grants allowed student to visit Spain, Nicaragua and the Canary Islands.
