Current Endowed Chairs


Ms. Jean Mueller, a farmer from Southeast Minnesota, will work to identify markets for local wool producers to re-build the once robust supply chain. She will conduct further research into consumer demand for locally produced wool, which would be shared with sheep producers across the region. Also, she will pilot a supply chain project by implementation of a wool product to test the supply chain from producers to consumers.

Tenure: 2017-2019




Ms. Beth Dooley will research and develop a cookbook, The Perennial Kitchen: A Field Guide for the Conscientious Cook, to illuminate the work of the Forever Green Initiative. She wants to focus on the work to improve soil fertility, stem erosion, and mitigate climate change. She will also examine the development of perennial crops (i.e. Kernza, flax, sunflowers, hazels.) As she develops the stories she will share what she is learning through her current media outlets - Star Tribune, MPR, KARE 11-TV, and others.

Tenure: 2018-2019
