Nick Battles, originally from Indianola, Iowa, will enter his fifth-year as an undergraduate student at Iowa State University this August. He will earn two Bachelor of Science degrees in May of 2022 — one in global resource systems and the other in agricultural policy & rural development. His minor of learning & leadership sciences ensures a ceaseless commitment to learning and leadership in all of his endeavors. As an ambassador for his academic college and as a student member of multiple department, college, and university-wide committees, he makes clear his keen interest in public service. For the summer, Nick is excited to dive into his first public policy-oriented internship while at the Food Research & Action Center.
