UFS academic appointed as Visiting Fellow at Cornell University
2007-11-12

Prof. Frans Swanepoel, Director of Research Development at the University of the Free State (UFS), was appointed as a Visiting Fellow at the Cornell International Institute for Food, Agriculture and Development (CIIFAD) at Cornell University in the United States of America. He has been invited to spend the second semester of 2008 at Cornell, where he will co-teach a Ph.D. course on International Agricultural Development, focusing on agriculture in Africa. In addition, his research programme will include the revision of agricultural education curricula for the development and commercialisation of smallholder family farms in Africa. In this regard, he will liaise with the newly established Centre for Africa Studies at the UFS. Prof. Swanepoel is also an Extraordinary Professor at the Centre for Sustainable Agriculture at the UFS, and Adjunct-Professor in Development Studies at the University of Fort Hare. Earlier this year, he was commissioned by the national Ministry of Agriculture to prepare a cabinet memorandum on the role of rural women in agriculture in preparation for the Fourth World Conference on Rural Women, held in Durban during April 2007.
