Join PUSH Initiative!
AIARD is working in collaboration with with colleagues at Auburn University to obtain global university president's signatures on a sign-on letter for The Presidents’ Commitment to Food and Nutrition Security. This effort is an outcome of the inaugural Universities Fighting World Hunger Pre-summit forum convened by the Hunger Solutions Institute at Auburn University and co-sponsored by FAO and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities on February 27-28, 2014.
Several universities have signed on to the attached commitment letter, many more signatures of university presidents are needed in preparation for an event showcasing this initiative at the United Nations on December 9.
US and international university Presidents who agree to sign the attached letter need to scan and return the signature page to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to come to the event, please fill out the RSVP HERE.
