STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - A dean and professor at Auburn University is scheduled to speak at Oklahoma State University later this month on how colleges can join the fight against hunger.

The March 31 lecture by June Henton, professor and dean of the College of Human Sciences at Auburn, will be held in the Wes Watkins Center Auditorium on the Stillwater campus.

Through a 2004 partnership with a United Nations program, Henton is credited with leading Auburn into a higher education war on hunger campaign.  

The collaboration became an educational model that addressed short- and long-term solutions for reducing hunger through a plan that included hunger awareness, advocacy and academic initiatives, among other actions.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
