The College of Agriculture features four of MSU’s top ten departments in terms of research expenditures.  Our talented and dedicated faculty members are world-renowned, focusing on issues like infectious diseases, microbes in Yellowstone National Park, invasive plant species, soil science and water resources, climate change, integrated pest management, risk management in agriculture, and distance education delivery. College faculty and staff also work to enhance the competitiveness of traditional crop and livestock sources. Gifted educators translate this information for students, offering first-class instruction and building foundations for successful careers and productive lives.

To enhance our record of superior education, research, and outreach, we have identified three areas of critical need for support.  They include:

  • College of Agriculture Greatest Need. This fund provides resources necessary to respond to immediate opportunities.  Whether investing in cutting edge research, student needs, faculty and staff development, or outreach programs, these resources are significant in allowing College leadership to make strategic investments, leverage resources, create excitement, and promote innovation and discovery.
  • Scholarship Program. With the rising cost of education being a reality associated with a University experience, it is important to support students through scholarships.  By helping to offset the cost of education we can attract the top students in Montana and our region as well as assist students that would otherwise be unable to afford a college education.
  • Academic Enrichment. These resources support student experiences such as field trips, guest speakers, and laboratory equipment.  At the College of Agriculture, the student experience goes beyond the classroom through field, laboratory, and even global instruction.  To fully offer students the knowledge to compete in an ever-changing agriculture and natural resources industry, we must be able to support these unique experiences.
