CEIED - Global Food and Nutritional Security

  • The CEIED is a virtual Center that leverages collective strengths across the 1890 universities to address global engagement and development goals. The Center will enhance the tripartite mission of the 1890 Land-grant System and hence, respond more efficiently to the complex challenges of global engagement and development. Expected outcomes include: 

    (1) Discovery and engagement in food and nutritional security strengthened through targeted programs addressing people-centered needs (farmers-consumers-communities), gaps and strength assessment (environment-focus nationally and regionally), food security best practices, 1890’s thematic expertise, watershed basin, agricultural policy, and international trade fostering U.S. competitiveness.
