Mary Stein (Department of Health & Human Development) is the first contact for new and transfer students. She introduces students to the whole SFBS Program and provides guidance on which option is best suited for their career goals.
Once enrolled in a specific SFBS option, students are advised by an academic advisor housed in the option's home department:
- Sustainable Crop Production- Dr. William Dyer & Dr. MacDonald Burgess in the Plant Sciences & Plant Pathology Dept. (PSPP).
- Agroecology- Dr. Bruce Maxwell & Dr. Perry Miller in the Land Resources & Environmental Sciences Dept. (LRES).
- Sustainable Food Systems- Mary Stein in the Health & Human Development Dept. (HHD).
- Sustainable Livestock Production- Dr. Pat Hatfield in the Animal & Range Sciences Dept. (ANRS).
Students in all four options benefit from taking courses from across all partnering departments, making for a truly interdisciplinary academic experience. Internships will be tailored to emphasize and support student career choices.
