Our Mission, Your Future
The mission of the Department of Agricultural and Extension Education is to prepare agricultural professionals to teach, lead, and serve.
Our department’s efforts are aimed at two of the nation’s greatest resources – its people and the agricultural industry. We are committed to serving the people of the state and nation by providing support for teaching, through our support for the professionals who work with the youth in FFA and 4-H programs, through our support for extension professionals who develop programs for their communities, and for those who are involved in informing the public about the great agricultural industry and in providing leadership in the multi-faceted areas of agriculture.

Welcome Back AEE Students to the 2015 Spring Semester!
We hope that you had a good break and were able to spend time with family and friends over the holidays.
We want to congratulate the 48 students in the department who earned the honor of being named to the Dean's List at NC State last semester! We have posted lists of our students who received this honor in the hallways on the 2nd floor of Ricks Hall. This represents almost a third of the undergraduate students in the department! And a special congratulations to the 5 students who earned 4.00 GPA's in the fall semester.
We want to extend a special welcome to our new students this semester. We know that our returning students will make them feel welcome.
The faculty is looking forward to a great semester!
Anna Bruner is a senior in Agricultural Education with a concentration in Animal Science and a minor in Animal Science. This semester, Anna is student teaching at East Wake High School. Growing up she lived in a farming community but her parents did not farm. Her parents did grow up farming and from the first day she entered high school Anna knew she wanted to go into an agriculture field she just was not sure what.
In high school, Anna was involved agriculture and FFA which led her to want to become an agriculture teacher. When it came time to apply to college, the only school she applied to was NC State and she thankfully was accepted. When Anna graduates in May, she plans to get a job teaching agriculture.
While at NC State, Anna has been involved in NC State Teaching Fellows a scholarship program and the Kappa Delta Sorority. As a member of the Kappa Delta Sorority, Anna has held numerous officer positions including parliamentarian, bylaws committee, recruitment committee, and community service committee.
