Rural-Urban Interface: Policy Issues and a Land Grant Response

Land Grant Universities exist to bring science to bear on the meaningful problems of the day. Roots of this applied science mission are in agriculture and its place in the broader society. As the face and character of agriculture change, so too must the Land Grants. This paper considers how things are changing in the zone where farm and city blend, what policy responses have emerged and where Land Grant Universities fit in all of that.
