Frontier Farm Credit has donated $100,000 to Kansas State University, which will use the funds to launch a new universitywide secondary major in global food systems. The gift to K-State is one way that Frontier Farm Credit is celebrating the centennial of the Farm Credit System.

The secondary major in global food systems is an interdisciplinary effort spearheaded by many departments and colleges universitywide. Any student with a primary major in any discipline is eligible to participate in the secondary major. The program offers different tracks: economics, entrepreneurship, production agriculture, policy, sustainability and community development.

“The support that Frontier Farm Credit is providing will help us launch this program,” said Dr. Kris Boone, head of the Department of Communications and Agricultural Education. “As an interdisciplinary curriculum, we have designed the program so that students from across campus can participate in it. There are opportunities for students to conduct research and work in other scholarly areas as well, helping us keep the university moving forward toward its goal to be recognized as a top 50 public research university by 2025.”
