Thanks to a gift from an alumna, Missouri State now has land for row crops for the first time in the university’s history. This fills a huge need for the MSU College of Agriculture. The farm was given by the Rev. Dr. Paula Kindrick Hartsfield, a 1976 graduate, and her husband, George. The Kindrick Family Farm had been in that family since 1876, making it a Missouri Century Farm — a designation given to farms that have been in the same family for 100 years or more.

Urban revitalization: Creating sustainable change.

The non-profit industrial complex repeatedly administers the same cocktail of educational, health, and job training supports in low-status communities across the U.S., yet these neighborhoods remain economically stagnant. America's increasing re-urbanization trend eventually consumes many such areas, spurring displacement and resentment towards the very outside investment that has been demanded for decades. Part of the reason is Brain Drain. Nearly every successful person from these communities leaves, taking their daily example of success, their local consumer spending, and their longer term reinvestment capital with them. How do we create a sustainable lifestyle infrastructure to keep talent in the places where it can produce the most benefit?

Sustainability in the extended global supply chain.

In today's world of global, extended supply chains, interactions between multiple trading partners is common and, many times, necessary. However, this has resulted in inefficiencies that have caused enormous amounts of waste: Wastes such as additional costs in logistics, manufacturing production and excess inventory. All of these costs associated with supply chain failures have resulted in excessive pollution in the air and water, and poor manufacturing practices is resulting in increased global warming. What is now known as the supply chain bull whip will be a focus on this presentation and how many leading businesses in all industries are now resolving these issues using techniques such as integrated business planning (IBP) and collaborative supply chain planning. The goal is to smooth the supply chain bullwhip, aligning the extended supply chain with consumer demand and optimizing the extended supply chain to significantly improve profitability resulting in many sustainability benefits.
