Research

Dr. Brock integrates the socioeconomic and agro-ecological sciences to facilitate farm management decisions and outreach strategies for multifarious farm systems (e.g. conventional, organic and managed grazing). Her teaching and research center on how to design effective non-formal strategies to enhance diversity and inclusion. A strong sub-focus of hers is the fastest growing rural minority group: the Amish.
