“EARTH fosters a desire to engage yourself in society.This is a great strength of the University: it isn’t just
about agronomy, but also about the community.”
EARTH alumnus Norvin Goff Salinas (’06, Honduras) is the president of a Coalition of Indigenous
Groups in La Mosquitia, the Caribbean coastal region of Honduras bordering Nicaragua. In
September of 2013, Norvin celebrated with his people and indigenous populations worldwide as
the Honduran government formally granted roughly 2,700 square miles of territory back to the
hands of its original stewards. Norvin represents more than 100,000 residents from five different
ethnic groups, and is a passionate promoter of territorial rights for indigenous people.
