The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) is a pioneer of purpose-driven science and Cornell University’s second largest college. We work across disciplines to tackle the challenges of our time through world-renowned research, education and outreach. The questions we probe and the answers we seek focus on three overlapping concerns: natural and human systems; food, energy and environmental resources; and social, physical and economic well-being.

The Northeastern IPM Center fosters the development and adoption of integrated pest management, a science-based approach to dealing with pests - one that provides economic, environmental, and human health benefits. We engage with stakeholders in agricultural, urban, and rural settings who work with us to identify and address regional priorities, whether for research, education, or outreach.

The Director leads the Northeastern IPM Center to fulfill its mission of fostering integrated pest management in the region in ways that generate economic, environmental, and human health benefits. This professional works in partnership with stakeholders from agricultural, urban, and rural settings to help them identify and address priorities for research, education, and outreach in the northeastern U.S. (for details on the region and Center, see http://www.northeastipm.org).
