University of Minnesota Crookston Chancellor Mary Holz-Clause says the university is focused on growth in agriculture. “There are great opportunities in agriculture for our students,” says Holz-Clause. “In Crookston, we’re trying to focus on getting students involved in internships so they can get out and see what the industry is doing. We also need to bring new people in and help young people understand the science-based jobs available in agriculture.” One of those opportunities is the new agricultural communications program. The program consists of mostly juniors and seniors now, but UMC Assistant Professor of Communication Megan Bell says recruitment is underway for the next year. “We have lots of flexibility in our program. There is a lot of potential on the horizon.”
