Cornell University, and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) in particular, is committed to agricultural and food systems research and extension programs that advance cross-disciplinary systems perspectives, sustainability, economic development, and environmental stewardship. As the Land Grant University for New York State, Cornell provides education, outreach and applied research for the benefit of New York's citizens, communities and landscapes. The university also has a strong international focus to its mission, particularly in the developing world. As a result, there are a wide variety of activities and resources at Cornell that are related to the study and support of local and regional food systems. These links provide a fairly comprehensive list of these activities.
