Cargill Strengthens Partnership with Global Resource Systems Program

Last week, a team from Cargill was on campus to meet with college officials and faculty, staff and students to discuss opportunities to strengthen the global resource systems major, with its unique focus on addressing world challenges through intense study and hands-on internship experiences. At a reception in the Harl Commons, President Leath and Dean Wintersteen announced a Cargill gift of $485,500 to enhance student recruitment into the GRS program, support faculty involved in the GRS program and award four new Cargill GRS Scholarships. This fall 105 students (majors and double majors) are involved with GRS. More than 400 ISU alumni currently work for Cargill worldwide.
