About The Program

Professors and Mentors

“Every participant will leave the program with a new and expanded appreciation of agriculture, and awareness of the incredible career opportunities to impact the world.” - John Lumkes, Associate Professor of Agricultural and Biological Engineering

Academic mentors who take part in this purposeful program find it nearly as transformative as it is for the students. They:

  • Play a pivotal role in developing students’ understanding of agricultural, food security and hunger issues;
  • Connect students with experts in related fields at their institution;
  • Support students’ research and development; and
  • Accompany students on a trip to Land OLakes International Development locations in Africa.

 

I'm hoping I’m able to bring a diverse perspective to the Land O'Lakes team and identify possible methods to innovate the Ag industry so that it can become more efficient.

- Alexander Fried, Emerging Leader, 2016-2017
