New Mexico State University Announces New Service Learning for Women Program

Four African women agricultural scientists were chosen by NMSU as the first participants in the prestigious, newly created Service Learning for Women (SLW) program. They will take part in a four-week (Sept. 12—Oct. 7) cross-cultural exchange at the university, with studies focused on agricultural extension and leadership skills. The women will attend classes and workshops, work with a mentor in their disciplines, meet with state agricultural leaders, visit current agriculture and extension programs, and present their experiences to local groups.
