Two Mississippi State University administrators have been accepted into a two-year leadership development program that will connect them with food systems peers and industry professionals. Peter Ryan, MSU associate provost, and Michael Newman, professor and director of the MSU School of Human Sciences, will join the national Food Systems Leadership Institute’s fall 2013 class.
The institute is an executive-level program designed to prepare participants for greater responsibilities within their organizations and in the broader context of food systems programs, including academia, industry and government. Participants attend three weeklong residential sessions at host institutions, including California Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo, North Carolina State University and The Ohio State University.
