The course will give students hands-on experience with agroecosystems. The joint effort between Dordt College, the University of Nebraska, the University of Minnesota and Iowa State University brings students from across the Midwest together for a week of intensive discussion and study.

One of Andy VanLoocke's biggest accomplishments has been creating Global Agriculture in a Changing World, a course he created when he came to Iowa State.

"I wanted to create a course that would tell people what agronomy is about and about the pressing issues facing our growing population," said VanLoocke, assistant professor in agronomy. "I want to teach students the basic processes and underlying biology, math and physics to appreciate what the headlines are telling them."
