Development Spotlight: Land O'Lakes

On December 2, CFANS staff, students, and graduates gathered along with representatives from Land O’Lakes, Inc., to celebrate the naming of the Land O’ Lakes Collaboration Center in Borlaug Hall and to experience the advanced teaching technology in the Land O’ Lakes Active Learning Classroom in Ruttan Hall.

Land O’Lakes President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Policinski spoke at the reception and emphasized the importance of the work being done by CFANS faculty and students to bring together science and facts into messages that lead the consumer to make informed choices and decisions about their food choices. “These two spaces represent just part of an historic $25 million investment in the University of Minnesota,” said CFANS Dean Brian Buhr. The rooms are just one example of the more than forty-year partnership between the dairy cooperative and the University that has led to great benefits for both parties. Learn more.
