Agricultural Education, Leadership & Communications Academic Department uri icon

The mission of the Department of Agricultural Education and 4-H Youth Development is to improve the economic well-being and quality of life for individuals, families and communities in the state of Idaho, the nation, and the world as a whole. To do so, we assist in the delivery of research-based information to those engaged in the production of safe, nutritious food, as well as those involved in the extensive food systems in Idaho, the Pacific Northwest and the global society. Additionally, we are uniquely positioned to demonstrate the relevancy of teaching in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences to prepare students, clientele and communities for the challenges of this century. Our emphasis is to use creative solutions and methodologies to deliver quality programs.
