Mission

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 and to foster their continuing involvement in the college and its alumni association.

Membership

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, or who have received a College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Alumni Association Award, a 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

Benefits of the society will continue to develop. Current plans 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.

Name of Society

Farm Lane is the primary artery of Michigan State University’s road map. Running north and south through central campus, it reminds us of our foundation as the original land-grant institution. To the Farm Lane Society, it represents the continuum of those who came before us and their accomplishments; a great foundation for future generations to continue to build the Michigan State University College of Agriculture and Natural Resources legacy.

Members

To date, over 220 individuals have been pinned into the Farm Lane Society. The college is greatly appreciative of your contributions to the rich heritage and success of the college as a CANR Alumni Association Board member, or the honor you have brought to the college as a notable recipient of a CANR Alumni Association Award or the CANR Distinguished Service Award.
