Feeding The World With USU Provost Noelle Cockett On Access Utah Friday
A piece of the 21st century pie--people everywhere are clamoring for their own life-sustaining morsel. But water, pesticide, distribution, and financial issues seem to conspire against assuring a hungry world there will be enough to eat. Noelle Cockett, executive vice president and provost for Utah State University, has long been researching answers to the question of how to feed 21st century populations. Dr. Cockett brought her expertise to Utah State University’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences’ Tanner Talks when she kicked off the 2013-15 lecture series last month with a look into the future of food production. Her talk was titled: “Feast or Famine: Feeding a Hungry World in the 21st Century.”
Provost Cockett will join Tom Williams for Friday’s Access Utah.
The 2014–15 Tanner Talks, a series of cross-disciplinary events focusing on the theme "Food: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow," are a presentation of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
