Farm Lane Society
The mission of the Farm Lane Society is to honor individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to the Michigan State University College of Agriculture and Natural Resources as a CANR Alumni Association Board member or have brought honor to the College as a notable recipient of a CANR Alumni Association Award or the CANR Distinguished Service Award and to foster their continuing involvement in the College and Alumni Association.
Membership is granted to alumni who have served in an appointed position on the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Alumni Association Board of Directors, received a College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Alumni Association, Distinguished Service Award or the College of Human Ecology Outstanding Alumni Award (and have your home department currently housed in CANR).
The Farm Lane Society has no membership dues or conditions of members.
Benefits of the society will continue to develop as time moves forward. Current plans for members include:
- Special recognition of members with a Farm Lane Society lapel pin
- Annual program held during ANR Week on campus
- Special behind-the-scenes tour of campus locations
- Special periodic programming on MSU properties and research centers
