Students gather to learn more about CAUSES

Just weeks into the Spring 2016 semester, CAUSES welcomed students to the "Intro to CAUSES" reception. Dean O'Hara shared how the academic, research and landgrant units of CAUSES collaborate to enhance the Urban Food Hubs Solution to Food Insecurity. She also explained to students the research, internship, volunteer and other opportunities available through the College.

"This will help students continue to formulate idea about the research they're going to do. The turnout to this event shows that people are interested in what we do," stated Dr. Elgloria Harrison, special assistant to the Dean.

"I was excited to learn about the volunteer opportunities available," echoed Accounting major, Alana.

"Because CAUSES is only a few years old, gathering students gives us a chance to assess how much they know about the landgrant component of the college," explained Associate Dean of Programs William Hare. 

"I didn't even know we had an agricultural program, or 4-H," commented Nekesha, an Information Systems major, while Mary, who is majoring in Social Work, stated, "I was surprised to learn how much CAUSES gives back." 

Special thanks to Ms. Claudia John, project specialist, Institute of Gerontology for spearheading the event.
