|On January 2nd I packed my suitcase and joined
the INTAG 602 class as they departed for Honduras. The two weeks following
that day were to become some of the most educational and enjoyable of my
life. The trip provided me with valuable insight into the tropics that would
not have been possible in a classroom. I spent time talking one-on-one
with small farmers, local professors, and area businesspeople. I had
the chance to see ecosystems that I had, until then, only read
about. As the trip came to a close, I could begin to see how my understanding
of the entire world had changed.

|The importance of this trip is contained in
its objective : a better understanding of the challenges that face agriculture
and farmers, particularly in developing nations. The course is an extension
of the historical role Cornell has played in
projects in developing nations - a role that makes
this institution known worldwide. The rewarding experience of this course
will be felt not only by the participants but also by those who are going
to benefit, such as farmers and students abroad.

We would like to thank Dennis Kulis and Cornell Media services for designing and producing the IA 602 brochure. Please also note that there are some small modifications in choice of photos and layout for this web presentation from the published brochure.
