A call for nominations for The APLU Food Systems Leadership Award


The Association for Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) Food Systems Leadership Award annually recognizes a senior leader who has made an extraordinary impact on the food system through leadership and service and who exemplifies the core principles established by the Food Systems Leadership Institute (FSLI), including personal leadership, organizational leadership and food systems leadership. The award also recognizes the leadership, innovation, engagement and service that APLU promotes through its programs.

The APLU Food Systems Leadership Award will be presented at “A Community of Scholars Honoring Excellence" award program at the APLU Annual Meeting held in November. The award program honors awardees for regional and national excellence in Food and Agricultural Sciences from colleges and universities across the United States. The meeting is attended by top level administrators from the 216 university memberships within the APLU as well as administrators from USDA and FDA. The recipient will be invited to address the current cohort of FSLI Fellows at one of their residential sessions.
