About 
 
During this journey, students will discover the role Mexico has played in the improvement of global food security.  The group will experience the vibrancy of Mexico City and walk in the footsteps of the legendary Dr. Norman Borlaug, who was the Father of the Green Revolution, at the international corn and wheat research center (CIMMYT).  Later, we will explore the biodiversity and Mayan culture found in the State of Yucatan, Mexico. This program is open to all majors, but well-suited to those with a sense of adventure and an interest in sustainable agriculture.
