CALS Races to Save the World

Times change and we with time are changed. At the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, we have been embracing change and the opportunities it presents, in bold and exciting ways. In this issue of periodiCALS, you will meet individuals like Shorna Allred and Angela Gonzales, who are molding minds in classrooms and communities through innovative and inclusive teaching, and Michael Gore and Prabhu Pingali, who are exploring radical new scientific and social solutions to global poverty and malnutrition. You will also be introduced to some of our superstar students, who are leaving their Big Red paw prints from Ithaca to Indonesia in pursuit of their academic and personal passions, as well as accomplished alumni who are blazing new trails in their respective fields.

In the Spring 2012 issue of periodiCALS, we featured portraits of 12 outstanding seniors. Student writer Andrea Alfano ‘14 has been checking in with these young alumni to see what they’ve been up to.
