CRSP Council Recognizes Outgoing Bean/Cowpea CRSP Director

PD/A CRSP Director Hillary Egna participated in the summer meeting of the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges (NASULGC) Commission on International Affairs, held 26–29 July 2000 at Otter Rock, Oregon. The Commission onInternational Affairs of NASULGC is tasked with enlarging the international dimension of academic exchanges, research, and development programs. Goals developed by NASULGC organizations for the year 2000 include increasing and strengthening US investment in global agriculture investment and food systems development, and promoting and integrating global perspectives and international experiences into the core missions of public universities. The CRSPs contribute to attaining this goal by linking US land-grant universities with national and international research institutions.

The NASULGC meeting coincided with a meeting of the CRSP Council Steering Committee. Directors of the nine CRSPs met to discuss issues pertinent to global development. One of the highlights of the meeting was the presentation of a plaque to outgoing Bean/Cowpea CRSP Director Pat Barnes-McConnell. Barnes-McConnell was recognized for her nearly 20 years of service as Director of the Bean/Cowpea CRSP.fish
