About the Summit
Careers in wildfire range from firefighters to researchers. Although the employment and career opportunities are diverse, the specialists in this field are not. Hosted by the Southern University Agricultural and Research Center and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Diversity and Wildfire Summit will introduce students in 1890 land grant universities to lucrative career options while promoting diversity within the field of wildland fires.
During this two-day event, students will have the opportunity to network with other students and learn about the various options available to them in agriculture and wildfire.
