The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences encompasses three important mission areas:
- Nearly 3,200 undergraduate students and 500 graduate students are enrolled on the Columbus and Wooster campuses. Students select courses and/or conduct research in one or more of our eleven departments or schools.
- Ohio State ATI is a national leader in awarding associate degrees in agriculture and related sciences.
- Our research mission is facilitated by The Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC) which has more than 400 research projects underway at anytime, focused on critical state, national and global issues.
- Ohio State University Extension, with offices in every county, helps improve lives, businesses and communities through its program areas of 4-H Youth Development, Agriculture and Natural Resources, Community Development, and Family and Consumer Sciences.
The three missions work hand-in-hand, discovering new knowledge and offering science-based solutions in both the classroom and the community through our resident and Extension education programs.
