Several dozen students from various CALS departments met at Williams Hall last week for a catered lunch and the semester’s first meeting of the Sustainable Agriculture Graduate Student Association (SAGSA). Current coordinators Jason Allen, Andrew Smolski, Wayne Roper, and Maia Fitzstevens introduced themselves, gave a preview of this year’s events and opportunities, and led student self-introductions around the tables.
SAGSA was formed at NC State in the early 2000s to encourage communication among individuals who are interested in trans-disciplinary discussions about sustainability in agriculture and related scientific, socioeconomic, and political factors. SAGSA focuses on community with social and service volunteering opportunities, and invites those interested to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
