Strategic Plan

Our path forward.

Our roadmap to ensure we steward our rich tradition and best position the College of Ag Sciences to answer tomorrow’s challenges.

Impacting agriculture in Pennsylvania and beyond.

The College of Agricultural Sciences at Penn State has an international reputation for providing leading research, degree programs, and extension education programs. Building on the land-grant tradition, we are a leader for change and a place for students, faculty, and staff to be innovators in the twenty-first century.

Rapidly changing and complex relationships among the food, fiber, natural resource, and energy systems at the local, national, and global levels provide both challenges and opportunities. Our planning focuses on addressing these changing needs for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and beyond.

The future excellence of the College of Agricultural Sciences is being determined today by the decisions we make about where resources are invested. Our goal is to assert leadership and foster innovation through organizational improvement and change.
