New sustainable agriculture program at MSC Southeast will aim to give students 'dirt cred'

Madeline Heim, Winona Daily News

Minnesota State College Southeast is on track to launch a new degree program in sustainable agriculture for the 2019-20 school year. 

When Liz Micheel, professor of biology at Minnesota State College Southeast, presented her proposal for a brand-new degree program to administrators, she thought there would be at least a little resistance.

"I had an argument for every reason why we needed to do sustainable agriculture here," she said, including her personal motivations for handing students the skills to farm with the environment in mind as well as the unique topography that makes the Winona area ripe for this type of work.

But as it turned out, she didn't need any of her arguments. The proposal was OK'd almost immediately.
