Two new members are being recruited for the Sustainable Food Systems Strategic Initiative (SFS) panel.
The SFS Initiative is one of five UC ANR Strategic Initiatives that help unify, communicate and advocate for the work we do in UC ANR. The Sustainable Food Systems SI encompasses UC ANR's work in sustainable production, intensive agriculture systems, safe food processing, and enhanced food access.
The SFS panel tasks include contributing to UC ANR's strategic plan, identifying themes and priorities for the future, identifying research and extension gaps, providing input on staffing, and highlighting important work in UC ANR related to sustainable food systems. We identify time-sensitive opportunities based on strategic priorities, convene meetings, engage stakeholders, and foster dialogue.
Appointments to the panel are for two- or three-year terms. The two individuals appointed will start their term in January, 2023.
Anyone within UC ANR or with an Agricultural Experiment Station appointment is eligible to apply.
Applications are due Nov. 15, 2022. Please apply at
