Tackling Global Food Challenges Through Collaboration and Innovation

  • Fairmont Grand Del Mar 5300 Grand Del Mar Ct San Diego, CA 92130 United States (map)

A global population of more than 9 billion people by 2050. Climate change. Changing consumer demand. All of these put extraordinary pressure on our global food and agricultural systems. Cornell is uniquely positioned to be a leader in higher education that provides radical and sustainable solutions to address such grand challenges. By bringing together leading faculty and researchers across disciplines — in data and information science, technology, biology, agriculture and business — Cornell is organized to provide the innovation necessary to turn research into practical applications to support more resilient food and agricultural systems.


Join Kathryn J. Boor, the Ronald P. Lynch Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, to learn how Cornell is leading the way in solving some of our toughest global challenges.
