AMSA 2021 Virtual Student Leadership Conference

Developing Critical Thinkers and Problem Solvers for the Development of Students to become Industry Leaders

Conference Objective: The objective of the conference is to expose attendees to applicable protein industry challenges while facilitating a collaborative approach to problem solving through a methodological process.

Impacts and Outcomes: Students will have the opportunity to interact with several industry leaders, undergraduates, and graduates from a variety of universities while working collaboratively to generate high level solutions to current industry challenges. The outcome of the conference is the further development of the attendees’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills to further utilize as they transition into the protein and allied industries. Due to the pragmatic nature of the conference and utilization of applicable industry challenges an additional outcome is the potential implementation of the high-level solutions on current relevant industry challenges.
