ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — University of Minnesota students and faculty are working to improve diversity in agricultural studies.

Fall enrollment numbers for 2018 show that the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences is nearly 85 percent white.

Minnesota Daily reports CFAN’s demographics compare with roughly a 79 percent white student population on the campus generally.

Senior UMN student Alexis Murillo is connecting with as many organizations as possible to bring in other marginalized communities to CFANS, beyond students of color.

Murillo says that agriculture’s wide-ranging impact on economic conditions highlight the significance of inclusivity.

Newly remodeled Pioneer Hall plans to house a living-learning community of up to 30 multicultural CFANS students in fall 2019.

  1. The U of M is an illegal state sponsored church system for liberal ideology — and taxing Minnesota citizens illegally.

    Basically these “think tanks” have benefits from the State that are artificially inflating home prices.
