Charge: To ensure we are taking action, carefully tracking, and regularly updating key stakeholders on food security efforts with the goal of creating a food secure campus. We aim to have a well-organized and coordinated effort around food security that we implement reliably year-after-year. Topics that will be covered regularly include communications and marketing, dining, assessment, graduate students, special populations, and innovative projects. The group will meet once or twice a month and report out four times per year to Vice President and Dean for Student Life, Suzy Nelson.
