Affiliate status is a designation for faculty and staff who are not hired to directly work for FFMPI. Individuals will be selected on the basis of their demonstrated interest in the pursuit of excellence in teaching, research, and Extension outreach in the areas of farm management and agricultural policy.  Each affiliated faculty and staff member is required to provide an annual summary detailing their collaborative accomplishments with FFMPI and their forthcoming plans for collaboration in the coming year.
