Who We Are

Presidents United to Solve Hunger is a consortium of universities from around the world that have the collective mission to end hunger and poverty, both locally and globally.

Signatories of the Presidents’ Commitment to Food and Nutrition Security make up a consortium known as Presidents United to Solve Hunger or PUSH. Powered by its student counterpart, Universities Fighting World Hunger, PUSH signatories pledge to work collectively toward zero hunger campuses, communities, and nations.

Universities nurture innovation and inspire critical thinking, and over the years many of the world’s best university researchers and teachers have made tremendous contributions to the science of growing, processing, transporting and accessing food. But until PUSH was developed in 2014, it was difficult for the academy to make a collective contribution to the global effort to end hunger and malnutrition.

Commitment Goals

PUSH Leaders Forum and Exclusive Events

The PUSH Leaders Forum is an opportunity for university leaders and their designees to network, collaborate, and discuss pressing issues facing thought-leaders across the globe regarding food and nutrition security.

Periodically, PUSH will host networking opportunities in various locations or in tandem with related professional conferences. Make sure your contact information is up-to-date to ensure you are always informed of upcoming PUSH forums and events.
