Go beyond the classroom with CAFNR! Hands-on learning is central to the education students receive in all 14 CAFNR degree programs. CAFNR encourages each student to complete a “signature experience.” This is part of the college’s “RISE” initiative: Research, International, Service Learning and Experiential Learning. Of course, you don’t have to stop at one – you’re welcome to participate in many signature experiences as you can fit into your time at Mizzou!
