What is “Sustainability in Agriculture: An Executive Course” at NC State?: Unique course

What is “Sustainability in Agriculture: An Executive Course” at NC State?: Unique course | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it
Agricultural sustainability is one of the key challenges for societies throughout the world.
CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

Faculty from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the Poole College of Management at NC State have developed a unique Executive Course focused on agricultural sustainability. This science-based, 2-day course is the first in the U.S. that integrates science, economics, and business management. It informs corporate executives on the current factors driving changes in resource availability, environmental regulation, and climate change that are impacting North American & global agriculture.

 

The course also discusses successful business models emerging as corporations explore appropriate paths for a sustainable future. The initial series of courses is being presented to managers and executives of major agricultural corporations.  The purpose is to help prepare leaders in the private sector for the challenging times ahead.

Day two, dean’s tour: MARC & CMAST | CALS News Center | News from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, NCSU | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it

The Dean visited the Marine Aquaculture Research Center, Smyrna, and the Center for Marine Aquatic Science and Technology, Morehead City, NC, visiting with more than 30 alumni, supporters, and CALS faculty.

 

The Dean asked supporters “to help validate what we need to do as a college,” as CALS moves through its strategic planning process.

 

He learned about MARC, where researchers are exploring aquaculture with salt water species, such as blue crabs; environmentally friendly water handling in aquaculture; sturgeon aquaculture; hybrid striped bass feed research; wind energy self-sufficiency research; local seafood marketing efforts, and more.
