Welcome to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University!

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences "discovers, develops, teaches, and applies knowledge and technology that enable students, clientele, and citizens of North Carolina and others to improve the quality of their lives and to enhance the agricultural, economic, environmental, and social well being of the state and world and to create and extend new knowledge through scientific research and extension in agriculture and the life sciences." Our college recently developed a strategic plan, for more information about our mission and core purpose please visit the CALS Strategic Plan website.

CALS educates students through its Office of Academic Programs, seeks new knowledge through its research division, the North Carolina Agricultural Research Service, and extends educational programs throughout the state through the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service. The teaching, research and extension functions are integrated within the College's 16 departments.
