June 14, 2023 – Earlier today, CNAS Dean Kathryn Uhrich testified in Washington, D.C., before the United States House of Representatives Committee on Agriculture’s Subcommittee on Conservation, Research, and Biotechnology. During the hearing — “A Review of Title VII: University Perspective on Research and Extension Programs” — testimony from each witness allowed the subcommittee to hear directly from land-grant institutions, a non-land-grant college of agriculture, and a Hispanic-serving agricultural university. Testimony provided the subcommittee insight as it considers provisions for the 2023 Farm Bill. Dean Uhrich shared agricultural research that is currently being conducted at UC Riverside and provided perspectives specific to being a designated Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) and among Hispanic-Serving Agricultural Colleges and Universities (HSACU).
