In honor of the 100th anniversary of Norman Borlaug’s birth, CFANS announced on March 27 that a bronze recasting of Borlaug's statue in the U.S. Capitol will be placed on the St. Paul campus later this year and will anchor a walkway dedicated to honoring contributors to agriculture. The statue was shown for the first time as part of events on campus honoring Borlaug during the week of March 24-29.
