Nicholas Copeland, an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology, was awarded a Core Fulbright Scholar Program grant to study sustainable food programs in Guatemala. The University of San Carlos in Guatemala City serves as his Fulbright host institution, and he works as a consultant for FUNDEBASE, a nongovernmental organization that promotes sustainable agriculture and food sovereignty in the region. Copeland has expanded his research into a multiyear project, which includes collaborations with colleagues in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
