Animal science student Janiya Stroger propelled herself into leadership and mentoring positions at Iowa State University. She serves as a mentor to younger college students, helping them learn about opportunities to become involved on campus and succeed in their studies. “It’s students like Janiya who play a critical role in helping other students feel welcome and thrive," says Audrey Kennis, student services specialist in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
Innovation in Action
During the 2020 pandemic, as customers scrambled to sign up for weekly pickup or delivery of boxes of produce fresh from the farm, many CSA farmers who had been struggling for subscriptions were suddently struggling to manage overwhelming demand. The Farm, Food and Enterprise Development program of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach has pulled together a list of top resources for CSA farmers. These resources focus on COVID-19 management and best practices for safe food and easy online ordering.
