Mission


The Agricultural Sciences Department provides students access to training in agricultural business and economics, crop science, and animal science leading to workforce and transfer success.  The Department works closely with 4-year partner institutions to improve access to advanced degrees.  Further, the Agricultural Sciences Department works closely with high schools to facilitate student transition from secondary to higher education and the workforce by career planning, program planning, and dual credit.

By collaborating with the local community the Department encourages a deeper relationship between local agencies, businesses and the college, giving students hands-on financial, entrepreneurial, and field experience.  The Department collaborates with state and national agricultural organizations to involve students in activities and industries. Through these efforts the Department promotes success for students pursuing careers in Agriculture.
