The McKnight Foundation is pleased to announce that Paul Rogé will serve as the senior program officer for its International program. Rogé brings over 20 years of experience in agroecology research and collaboration with farmers in nine countries across four continents. He will start his new role in July.

As senior program officer, Rogé will lead and advance the biophysical science research in the Collaborative Crop Research Program, which works with smallholder farmers, research institutions, and development organizations to improve access to local, sustainable, nutritious food and create a just global food system. The International team includes program director Jane Maland Cady, PhD, program officer Megan Powers, program team administrator Kelsey Johnson, and a team of consulting partners who support the Collaborative Crop Research Program’s work across 10 countries.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome Paul and appreciate that he will bring his perspective and experience to our team as we work with partners around the world in support of agroecological and farmer-centered research that addresses food availability, climate change, and global equity,” said Maland Cady. “We believe deeply that strong relationships are the catalyst for advancing our work. Paul’s experience aligns with our mission and vision, and his collaborative, farmer-focused approach is an asset to McKnight as we continue to advance this critical work.”
