Student Profile

William Cecio

I am a junior at Syracuse University majoring in Food Studies with an Environment & Society minor. I am interested in food justice issues of access, labor, race, and economic inequality including their relationship with agriculture, and environmental sustainability. After working as a research assistant for Professors Evan Weissman and Jonnell Robinson, they introduced me to the Syracuse Community Geography program. I have found that SCG’s projects connect with the themes of my food studies program and research positon. After graduation I plan to attend graduate school and will focus on food policy. I’m most interested in not-for-profit, community based organizations doing grassroots work.
