Business and Industry

Together, we are better.

When academia and industry partner in meaningful ways, the benefits to Pennsylvania’s farms, economy, citizens, communities, and natural resources are multiplied.

We convene around important topics, advocate for the college’s research and extension efforts, and create shared knowledge about college programs, activities, and opportunities.
