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!
Earlier this week at the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Teaching Awards reception, Kevin Curry, a doctoral student in AEE received the North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture Graduate Student Teaching Award of Merit. Congratulations, Kevin!
Hannah Elmore is a senior majoring in Agriculture Education. Hannah has always had a passion for agriculture since she grew up on a Jersey Dairy farm in Iredell County. Her family inspired her to get involved in agriculture and through her work as a cooperative extension intern the past two summers, she has learned how far agriculture reaches and how to learn from every agriculture experience.
The decision to come to NC State was easy for Hannah. Her father attended NC State so she grew up in a Wolfpack house. She also had the opportunity to visit NC State’s campus during high school when she competed in FFA events which led her to know that this was the college she wanted to attend.
Hannah decided to major in agriculture education because she had taken almost every agriculture course that was offered at her high school and her FFA experiences shaped who she is today.
