Staff pay a successful visit to the University of Minnesota
2008-08-01

 

Staff from the University of the Free State’s (UFS) Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences, Prof. Herman van Schalkwyk, dean of the faculty, and prof. Izak Groenewald, director of the Centre for Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Development, recently paid a successful visit to the University of Minnesota in the United States of America (USA). They visited among others the Minnesota Council on Economic Education (MCEE) and had talks with a representative of Cargill Inc., the world’s largest privately owned corporation. There is a good possibility that substantive monetary support will result from this interaction between the UFS and the University of Minnesota. During the visit were, from the left, back: Prof. Van Schalkwyk, Prof. Groenewald and Mr Tim Bodin, member of the MCEE council of directors and economist from Cargill Inc.; front: Dr Nona Mason, chairperson of the MCEE and director of the Master’s Programme in Business Communication at the St. Thomas University, and Prof. Claudia Parliament, executive director of the MCEE and professor in the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota. Prof. Parliament recently completed her sabbatical leave at the UFS.
