The center organizational structure was comprised of two committees and administrative staff. The executive committee, with leadership from the center's six primary partners, directed the center and managed its activities. The steering committee, with expert faculty and staff from the partner colleges and schools, identified and initiated food policy issues. The administrative team provided operations and communications support.

The authors wrote the policy Analyses and Issue Briefs available on this site. The reviewers listed served on multidisciplinary teams in an advising capacity for the Issue Briefs related to today's complex food issues.

Contact information displayed for authors and reviewers is current at the time of authorship and/or document completion.
