Campus Fellow

Good Food Institute

GFI Campus Fellows will have a critical role in ensuring that a good food future happens as quickly and efficiently as possible. As a Campus Fellow, you will take on a dynamic leadership opportunity shaping discourse around the future of protein at your university and establish an in-depth network with leading entrepreneurs in the plant-based and clean meat, egg, and dairy industries.

How You Will Make a Difference:

As a GFI Campus Fellow, your primary goal is to increase the number of students at your university that pursue entrepreneurship in plant-based and cellular agriculture alternatives to factory-farmed foods. To do this, you will build institutional support, identify allies, and plan events. Specific activities will include:

- Networking with campus groups and coordinating to host GFI on campus for speaking events.

- Working with industry contacts - including founders and CEOs at various plant-based and clean meat companies - to put on a panel event on campus.

- Working with professors to host GFI for guest lectures.

- Coordinating and attending meetings with key university contacts such as the heads of social entrepreneurship, innovation, sustainability, etc.

- Creating a publicity strategy for GFI events: working with the campus newspaper, campus organizations, and key stakeholders.

Who We’re Looking For:

We are seeking smart, thoughtful, and creative self-starters who want to push back against climate change, transform industrial animal agriculture, and develop healthy and humane foods that are accessible to everyone. GFI Campus Fellows enjoy high levels of autonomy and must be self-motivated and work well both independently and in concert with a larger group.

We are considering students currently enrolled in MBA programs. GFI Campus Fellows must also have:

- Strong organizational skills.

- Exceptional networking and communication skills.
