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.

College Relations helps create productive, engaging, and even inspiring connections among ag-related businesses and organizations and our faculty, staff, and students. We convene around important topics, advocate for the college’s research and extension efforts, and create shared knowledge about college programs, activities, and opportunities.
