What's Tom Vilsack up to these days?
The Obama-era agriculture secretary will join Colorado State University to head up several food and water initiatives, the university announced April 10.
Vilsack and his wife, Christie, who works for the U.S. Agency for International Development, will serve as advisers to the university and the National Western Center, and education and entertainment development in northern Denver.
The former Iowa governor will be responsible for forming and chairing a board of counselors to advise the university and others on food, water, energy and environment issues.
"In addition, Tom Vilsack will participate in lectures, policy discussions, and faculty and student collaborations; as well as establish an annual meeting at the National Western Center focused on the interface of agriculture and water with integration to climate [and] smart agriculture initiatives," a university statement said.
It's no surprise Vilsack is taking up a new position in Colorado. When he left the USDA, Vilsack said he's be splitting his time between Iowa, Washington D.C. and the mountain state, where one of his grandchildren lives.
In addition to his post in Colorado, Vilsack announced in January he'd become chief executive of the U.S. Dairy Export Council—a Washington, D.C.-area trade group for dairy producers and processors.
