Land, Farming, and Community Program

Nothing is more basic to human life and human societies than food. Yet our current agricultural system creates both obesity and malnutrition, both significant unemployment and underemployment, both poor soil and weak communities. Graduates of the Land, Farming and Community (LAND) degree will be part of the exciting diverse community of people (politicians, farmers, educators and health care workers) who are changing human societies through the very foundation of our existence, food.

Through a combination of classroom-based and experiential on-site learning, students gain an appreciation of the science and art of agriculture. For example, graduates of the LAND degree will be equipped to facilitate alternative, smaller-scale, diversified agricultural practices and policies or to educate about the holistic nature of food and food production or to provide innovative solutions to contemporary food distribution patterns that leave many without access to any fresh, nutritious food.
Xavier's LAND degree offers students the opportunity to become stewards of healthy, productive soil, communities and regions.
