Internationally Connected in Agriculture’s Future

“ICA Future: Bridging Gaps for the Future”
Presented by: Jesse Bohlin

From its beginning in 2014, ICA Future has continuously worked to be an inclusive environment where international and domestic students within the College of Agriculture could come together to build relationships and learn about cultures other than their own. In an increasingly globalized world, ICA Future recognizes the importance of students learning to work among cultural differences and embrace the differences of others within personal and professional relationships. From hot pot nights to pumpkin carving, the students in this organization have found not only an organization but a family at Purdue.

The seminar is open to the public. This is part of a weekly seminar on Food Security, where invited speakers from Purdue and outside the university help elevate the dialogue on the availability, access, and use of food in our world. Please do come and engage in dialogue with students and our expert speakers.
