This program, held at the University of Split on the Adriatic Sea in Croatia, will provide students a global, interdisciplinary perspective of how individuals make food decisions through a systems perspective when eating away from home. This system includes a farm-to-fork perspective, and how the decisions made by each stakeholder (from consumers to providers) within the system impact those along the entire value chain continuum – production, distribution, purchasing, preparation, management, and consumption. The course will incorporate economic and managerial dimensions to the discussion of food decisions in food service away-from-home eating contexts, particularly emphasizing the behavioral aspect of decisions – how individuals (consumers, providers, managers) make choices in the food system, and what might be the consequences of these choices. The course will use evidence from multiple farm-to-fork perspectives in an international setting to allow students to analyze food systems problems and solutions.
Summer: This program will not run in summer 2021, but hopes are that program operation will resume in 2022. Contact the faculty leader or check back for information about future travel on this program.
