Building Relationships Across Higher Education Institutions to Address Racism in the Food System

February 11, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


he land grant system includes the 1862 (white-led), 1890 (historically Black) and 1994 (Tribal/Indigenous) colleges and universities. These land grants, as well as Hispanic Serving Agricultural Colleges and Universities and other public/private higher education institutions all contribute to the advancement of a more sustainable and equitable food system.

This webinar will use a racial equity lens to provide an overview of the history and policy that developed these institutions and using that same lens, reimagine an asset-based pluralistic model of collaborative research and outreach across these institutions to advance food system sustainability and resiliency.

Panelists from the land grant system and a Hispanic Serving Ag Institution will provide brief remarks followed by a facilitated discussion across panelists and with the webinar audience about how to create a more sustainable and equitable food system future.
