Sustaining Economies and Natural Resources in a Changing World:
Key Role of Land Grant Universities

April 2-3, 2013 | Reitz Union, University of Florida | Gainesville, FL



The goals of this symposium are to celebrate past Land Grant University (LGU) successes and explore research and extension directions that will help the University of Florida and its partners address future challenges to Sustaining Economies and Natural Resources in a Changing World. Our objectives are:

  • Better characterize the major challenges to sustaining economies and natural resources
  • Identify state, national, and international research priorities needed to address the challenges
  • Cultivate cooperation amongst academic, industrial, and governmental partnerships
  • Ensure that our work continues to be relevant to society

To help celebrate this 150-year anniversary, we are recognizing that LGUs played key roles in the scientific discoveries and technological advances that have shaped our state, nation, and world. Looking through that historical lens, this symposium will help launch UF and other LGUs into the next 150 years.
