Former Food Systems Minor committee member and educator, Paul Rogé is now Senior Program Officer for the McKnight Foundation’s International Program. While at UC Berkeley, he facilitated the Food Systems minor capstone course called Experiential Learning Through Engagement in Food Systems from Fall 2016 through Fall 2018. During this time, he received funding from the American Cultures Engaged Scholarship program to completely redesign ESPM 117 – Urban Garden Ecosystems as an American Cultures course called Urban Agriculture and Food Justice. This funding also supported three undergraduate students to conduct community-engaged food systems scholarship during the summer of 2018. These are just a few of Paul’s contributions to growing opportunities for undergraduate students interested in studying food systems from multicultural, transdisciplinary, and social justice perspectives. He also co-founded The Cooperative New School and Agroecology Commons.
