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!
