Agriculture professionals have the opportunity to support the future of food safety scientists by donating to several Center for Produce Safety (CPS) programs. The Center for Produce Safety offers programs that encourage science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students to pursue a career in produce food safety.
CPS 2023 Research Symposium: You can sponsor a university science student’s registration to attend the 2023 CPS Research Symposium, where they’ll learn about the latest in produce safety science and have the opportunity to network with and learn directly from produce industry members.
CPS Professional Development Program: You can sponsor a student assisting one of CPS’ researchers to participate in the annual Professional Development Program. The program rounds out the student’s STEM skills with leadership, communication and business etiquette.
CPS Master’s Immersion Program: You can support the continuing professional development of promising Master of Science students by having them conduct produce safety research in an industry setting.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, CPS brings together diverse leaders from industry, government, and the scientific and academic communities, to work collectively toward the common goal of enhancing fresh produce food safety.
