Terry Centner was recruited by the Department to add a legal component to the College's teaching and research programs. His teaching program involves environmental, public health, and agribusiness law courses.

Professor Centner's research program involves policy analyses of current issues confronting agriculture and the environment. As summarized in a summary of selected publications, this program involves scientific inquiry and investigation of policy issues facing agriculture and the application of findings and recommendations to enhance agricultural performance. As new challenges confront agricultural production and marketing, he redirects his efforts to timely new topics and develops new ties with scientists in other disciplines. In 2004, his book entitled Empty Pastures was published by the University of Illinois Press.

Professor Centner's professional activities include memberships in law and economics associations. He has been an active member of the American Agricultural Law Association, serving as Secretary-Treasurer from 1985-87 and as President for 1992-1993.

International studies, research, and teaching have been a part of Professor Centner’s activities. He was chosen by the Alexander von Humboldt Stiftung as a research fellow at the University of Goettingen, Germany. In 2002-2003, he was selected a Fulbright Senior Scholar to teach at the University of Mannheim. Through yearly international presentations, he has shared his research in numerous countries around the world.
