Dr. Valgenti is a visiting professor of Philosophy at the University of Bologna. An expert on food ethics, he is a member of The Menus of Change University Research Collaborative (www.moccollaborative.org), which focuses on using college dining halls to promote healthy, sustainable, and ethical food consumption and distribution. He will discuss the various ways that the food system not only weaves its way through every facet of campus life, but also offers an opportunity for activism on a wide range of topics.
