NWREC’s Graduate Student Association is an interdisciplinary community of new and developing agricultural scientists, and we value the exchange of ideas among departments to enhance our understanding of the systems we each are working in. This summer Lunch and Learn seminar series at NWREC will give graduate students an opportunity to share ideas and gain experience presenting research work and responding to questions. The Center is invited to attend to gain a better understanding of the research taking place here and to provide an opportunity for everyone to get to know our graduate students better.
