Agricultural Economics Assistant Professor and Extension Public Policy Specialist, Brad Lubben, was recently elected to the Farm Foundation Board of Trustees. Created in 1933, the Foundation works as a catalyst for sound public policy by providing objective information to foster deeper understanding of issues shaping the future for agriculture, food systems and rural communities. The Foundation has been a long-time supporter and partner of land grant universities in educating the public on important food, agriculture and rural issues, according to Lubben.
"I've personally benefited from those efforts and from Foundation support over the past 20 years as an Extension Economist and Policy Specialist," he said. "I consider it a great privilege to serve on the Board of Trustees and help further the Foundation's educational efforts."
