Change is hard but can also offer rewards. Transitioning to new agricultural practices, policies, and paradigms is challenging because of high costs and they require long-term planning. Change can be made much easier, however, through collaborative processes. C-CHANGE works within the academic and agricultural communities to facilitate change by:
- Encouraging network building and the creation of new partnerships
- Engaging and developing “change agents” within and beyond the university
- Partnering with Extension and Outreach
- Providing training and mentoring
The Leadership and Engagement effort is led by Adam Janke.
