—A Pacific Northwest “First”
Northwest Five Consortium pilots its first intensive summer course
Students will live, study, and travel across three campuses
TACOMA, Wash. – This summer students at five Washington and Oregon liberal arts colleges have the chance to join a new, on-the-road course studying locally grown food and its impact on our lives, economy, and politics.
In this jointly-run course—a pilot project from the Northwest Five Consortium—students live and study across the Northwest, with stopovers at three colleges: Whitman College, University of Puget Sound, and Willamette University. The three-week course starts July 26 and is the first for-credit offering from the partnership. Read more at: Foodsystems Northwest
