Go beyond the classroom with CAFNR! Hands-on learning is central to the education students receive in all 14 CAFNR degree programs. We encourage all undergraduate students to engage in at least one “signature experience” during their education experience, defined by four categories: Research, International - Study Abroad, Service Learning and Experiential Learning (RISE). Read more about these RISE signature experiences by category.
