Cultivating Diversity & Inclusion
CAFNR will honor Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15) by highlighting notable Hispanic Americans – including CAFNR alumni – in the fields of agriculture, food and natural resources. Keep an eye on the CAFNR website, social media and digital displays to learn more! In addition, explore Latinx communities in Missouri by attending (virtually!) a presentation as part of a series from a variety of sponsors, including the Cambio Center and MU Extension. The events are part of the Missouri Bicentennial Inclusion Initiative, and continue through November.
