Welcome to the Department of Agricultural and Extension Education

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.

Visit our webpages to see how we develop the new generation of professionals in agricultural education, extension, and agricultural science. Our mission is your future!

AEE Profiles

Kristen BaughmanKristen Baughman attended NC State University as both an undergraduate and graduate student. She has a B.S. in Extension Education with a specialty in nutrition and a Master’s in Extension Education with a focus on leadership. Kristen grew up in Charlotte, NC and did not become interested in agriculture until she began working as an intern for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. During her time as an intern, she became interested in the local food movement and began a blog.

When Kristen first started at NCSU, her major was Nutrition Science but she quickly figured out that was not for her. After meeting with Dr. Flowers, Kristen was introduced to the Extension Education program and knew that was the perfect fit. While at NC State, Kristen was involved in the March of Dimes Collegiate Council, Student Senate, University Scholars, and the Agri-Life Council. During her time at NC State, Kristen said that she loved the community and that the professors want you to be successful.
