CAFLS Awards

Greg Yarrow acting dean

“The faculty, staff, and students of CAFLS and PSA achieve incredible impacts every day, but each year a few go above and beyond. Our faculty and staff award winners embody our Land Grant mission, making extraordinary contributions to teaching, research, and Extension across agricultural, animal, food, packaging, and natural sciences. And our student awards honor academic and leadership achievements by our college’s undergraduate students, graduate students, and student organizations. I am grateful we can honor their achievements, and I am proud of their choice to call CAFLS and PSA home. ”
