Ms Julie Borlaug

Associate Director Borlaug Institute External Relations, Texas A&M University
Julie Borlaug is the granddaughter of Dr. Norman E. Borlaug and the Associate Director of External Relations at the Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture and also handles Strategic Initiatives for Corporate Relations within AgriLife Research at Texas A&M. Since the passing of her grandfather, Julie has worked to continue his legacy through developing agricultural partnerships between public, private and philanthropic groups to further the Borlaug legacy and agricultural research at Texas A&M and expand upon his mission to feed the world’s hungry. Julie received her BA from Texas A&M in International Studies and Political Science in 1997 and her MBA in Nonprofit Management from the University of Dallas in 2004. Prior to joining the Borlaug Institute, Julie worked in the nonprofit sector and has worked for organizations such as the Salvation Army and the American Cancer Society as Development of Director. In her role, Julie works to champion her grandfather’s legacy and lend a voice to his desire to see more successful collaborative partnerships between the public and private partnerships in order to ensure the advancement of innovation and technology in agriculture. Julie hopes that through her efforts and in honor of her grandfather’s legacy, we will all recommit ourselves to educating, mentoring and training the next generation of “hunger fighters” who will continue Dr. Borlaug's work to end hunger and eliminate poverty. Julie speaks often about the Borlaug Legacy, the need for research and technology in agriculture as well as youth and innovation. She serves on several boards and advisory councils including: FarmLink Thought For Food Challenge Planet Forward- George Washington University Community for Zero Hunger Global Coalition for Attracting and Retaining Youth in Agriculture The Agriculture and Food Security Center at the Earth Institute, Columbia University CropLife Foundation Council for Agricultural Science & Technology (CAST)– Board of Trustees
