Borlaug Seminar this Thursday, 4/18

In this presentation, Julie Borlaug, granddaughter of the late Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Dr. Norman E. Borlaug, will lead a panel discussion with students and development experts on the role that students play in international development via the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute and the annual Thought for Food Challenge.
During the hour-long discussion, Will Rooney, professor in the Texas A&M University Department of Soil & Crop Sciences, will share his experience with the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute and the experience’s implications in his college career.
Also on the panel will be student representatives of Texas A&M University’s Team Giving Tree — the winning team in last year’s Thought for Food Challenge. The team members will discuss their participation and review the eco-park project that led them to victory in the contest.
Additionally, student attendees of the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute will share their experience and the affect their participation has had on their university careers at A&M
