CFAES is launching a four-year degree program in sustainable agriculture. The new major, which will lead to a bachelor of science in agriculture, starts fall semester 2021.
“Our graduates will have practical skills, be problem solvers, and systems thinkers—the qualities needed for success in many careers and that will help them make the changes in the world we’re all hoping for,” said Casey Hoy, holder of CFAES’ W.K. Kellogg Foundation Endowed Chair in Agricultural Ecosystems Management. Hoy led the team that created the major.

CFAES’ Agroecosystems Management Program (AMP) requests research proposals for on-farm research by teams of Ohio State researchers and Ohio farmers. Grants are available annually through the Paul C. and Edna H. Warner Endowment Fund for Sustainable Agriculture. The proposal deadline is March 1. Read more.
