The VP Promise:
Enriching the CALS Student Experience

The VP Promise is my new initiative providing support to undergraduate students studying within the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS). With the VP Promise, our goal is to enrich CALS students by offering immersive personal experiences in agriculture, life science, and natural resources. These could include:

These are all excellent examples for how students can learn beyond the classroom. I believe every student should have this opportunity, and should get the support to participate if they need it. We want our students to experience an unparalleled collegiate journey that stands out among — and above — our academic peers. Join me in supporting this promise to our future leaders.
