Biography of Dr. Charles J. Zwick

In 2010, alumnus Charles J. Zwick donated $1 million to the University of Connecticut’s Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics and the Food Marketing Policy Center.  His generous gift expanded the mission of the Center to include economic and policy studies on energy, food policy and health, natural resource economics and land use, and agriculture. In recognition of this tremendous gift, and the broadened mandate, the Center was renamed the Zwick Center for Food and Resource Policy.
