Tearing Down Ivory Towers

One of our DPH students, Josh Miller shared this article from the March 2015 issue of CSA News.  Josh thought it was relevant to the careers DPH students will take on upon graduation.
Title of the article is "Tearing down the ivory towers", this sentence had great impact: "...If you only had 30 seconds on the tailgate of a truck between two corn fields could you explain to a farmer what you do and how it impacts them? For most of us involved in agriculture, farmers are the primary stakeholders..."
Who are your stakeholders?

Agriculture...it's where careers are growing!

Read the May 11, 2015 news release quoting Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack sharing a new report showing tremendous demand for recent college graduates with a degree in agricultural programs. 
The report also notes there is an average of 35,400 new U.S. graduates with a bachelor's degree or higher in agriculture related fields, 22,500 short of the jobs available annually.  A Doctor of Plant Health degree will give you the knowledge to set yourself apart when searching for your career.
