About the Sustainability Taskforce

The CALS Sustainability Task Force was established to explore how the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences could become more engaged in sustainable agriculture efforts, including highlighting what it has already accomplished, identifying additional opportunities to invest in research, teaching and extension and understanding how the college can lend its leadership to the national conversation on sustainable agriculture.

Paul Lasley, professor of sociology, chairs the Task Force (view our members), which has brought in guest speakers; established a website on task force activities and information; and developed an overview of existing efforts in sustainability underway in the college and an external scan of how other agricultural colleges have engaged in sustainability.
