The University of Minnesota Grand Challenges Research Initiative
As a part of the University of Minnesota–Twin Cities Strategic Plan, five Grand Challenge research areas were identified for which the University is well-position to affect the most change. The five areas are: Assuring Clean Water and Sustainable Ecosystems, Fostering Just and Equitable Communities, Advancing Health Through Tailored Solutions, Enhancing Individual and Community Capacity for a Changing World, and Feeding the World Sustainably.1
Addressing two of the five Grand Challenges (Enhancing Individual and Community Capacity for a Changing World and Feeding the World Sustainably), the Hungry to Learn study was one of six projects awarded funding by Phase 3 of the Grand Challenges Research Initiative.
