Who We Are
NDSU Agricultural Affairs includes all three missions reflected in the Land-Grant tradition: teaching, research and extension. As such, it includes the NDSU College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources; the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station; NDSU Extension Service; and the Northern Crops Institute.
NDSU Agricultural Affairs values the ongoing development of diverse human and natural resources essential for an educated citizenry and viable North Dakota communities. NDSU Agricultural Affairs also values internal and external partnerships for collaborative pursuits of excellence in education, research, extension and service.
The mission of NDSU Agricultural Affairs is to educate students with interests in agriculture, food systems and natural resources; to foster North Dakota communities as vital economic and social units through the formation of partnerships that educate the public in agriculture, life and environmental disciplines; provide creative, cost-effective solutions to current problems; and pursue all relevant fundamental and applied research.
