Alumna Bower has papers published by USDA

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has published several papers written by Alisha Bower (MPA ’16) while she was an international agriculture intern in Lima, Peru. The papers focus on biotechnology, climate change, and trade issues related to Peru’s agricultural industries as the country’s new president – Pedro Pablo Kuczynski – assumed office.

2011 alum Jonny Hunter received the Forward under 40 award from the Wisconsin Alumni Association for his innovative Underground Food Collective and work in food policy.

Alisha Bower has a plan that will take her to Latin America and then bring her home to the United States, ultimately to run a farm. "I want to work in international agriculture development," the first-year student says, "then I will return to the U.S., put down roots and work on sustainable agriculture issues, eventually transitioning into farming myself."
