Lincoln University will host the U.S. Department of Agriculture on Monday when U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will discuss plans for combating climate change.
Vilsack will be traveling to Missouri and visiting LU to make some remarks about the USDA's plan under President Joe Biden's administration to address climate change by partnering with agriculture, forestry and rural communities to develop solutions that also work to strengthen those communities.
University President John Moseley said he's looking forward to Vilsack's visit.
"It's a big deal for us to show off our campus and all of the great things that we're doing in our School of Agriculture," Moseley said. "It gives our students the chance to interact with the secretary and for the secretary to learn about the experiences of our students and what's taking place here at Lincoln."
The speech is scheduled for early afternoon Monday, with a livestream of the remarks on the USDA Live webpage beginning at 12:50 p.m.
