MEET THE CHAIR
Dr. Farenhorst joined the Department of Soil Science in May, 1998. Her training includes a B.Sc. in Physical Geography and Soil Science (University of Amsterdam) and a Ph.D. in Soil Pesticide Chemistry (University of Toronto).
THE PURPOSE OF THE CHAIR
The purpose of the chair is to develop and successfully lead strategic activities that promote greater opportunities for women, particularly Aboriginal women, in science and engineering across the Prairie Region. The specific research program of this Chair addresses the fact that for several generations, certain academic studies have attracted fewer women than men.
