Mission Statement

Mission Statement

The Center for Food Studies at Bard College at Simon’s Rock will advance our community’s knowledge of food as a cultural force and our responsibilities as stewards of a sustainable food system. The Center's educational mission will promote an understanding of the world around us by providing a forum for collaboration, communication, and learning across a variety of food realms by:

  • offering for-credit courses within existing Simon's Rock programs;

  • collaborating with community partners to sponsor lectures, conferences, and other educational events on campus and across the region; 

  • creating opportunities for students and local organizations to benefit from internships and other work/study arrangements;

  • presenting non-credit workshops for personal and professional education; and

  • partnering creatively on and off campus to develop awareness of critical issues related to food, leading to productive connections and action.
