Title: Barriers to innovation for University of Guelph undergraduate students returning to a family farm after graduation
Author: Danderfer, Chris
Department: School of Environmental Design and Rural Development
Program: Capacity Development and Extension
Abstract: The purpose of this research is to examine the barriers that Ontario Agricultural College (OAC) undergraduate students may face when trying to implement new ideas on their family farms during and after their programs. This issue will be considered from the viewpoint of the students and from faculty of various levels within the University of Guelph to gain a better understanding of how the University of Guelph views the role of undergraduates in agricultural innovation. Furthermore, areas for improvement, as identified by participants, will be discussed in order to create a basic framework that can be utilized for future conversations on how to improve OAC programs in order to enable undergraduate students to become a stronger source of agricultural innovation.
