Under the supervision of Professors Christine Parker and John Howe, Sophie will present her thesis titled, 'Campus Food Revolutions: Investigating policy and projects for food system transformation in American universities'.

Abstract

Many North American universities are actively working to transform their campus food systems to be more sustainable, healthier, more equitable and more inclusive. Through programming, teaching, research and extra-curricular opportunities as well as procurement and infrastructure, communities are working together to create policy and projects for change. This research investigates how these innovations come about and both the successes and barriers that occur in their implementation. This research uses campus case studies to examine the networks, policy and governance structures that support change within institutions while considering the role of the contemporary university as a ‘living laboratory’ conducting experiments for the benefit of broader society.
