About the PUSH Commitment
With the personal and societal threats we face globally and in our own communities, now is the time to bring expertise from throughout the academy to engage every discipline in finding sustainable solutions to hunger and malnutrition. To address this critical issue, a meeting of senior level university administrators was held in conjunction with the UFWH Summit in February 2014.
A consensus outcome from that gathering, which drew 70 leaders from 30 universities in Canada, the United States, and Latin America, was the Presidents’ Commitment to Food and Nutrition Security. The document outlines strategic goals and provides an action guide for making food and nutrition security a campus priority in the areas of teaching, research, outreach, and student engagement.
