The founding college of Michigan State University, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources encompasses a broad view of agriculture and natural resources, with academic programs in 13 departments, schools and programs including undergraduate and graduate programs.
Since its beginning, Michigan State University Extension has focused on bringing knowledge-based educational programs to the people of the state to improve their lives and communities. Today, staff members, in concert with on-campus faculty members, serve Michigan citizens with programming focused in four areas: Greening Michigan, Agriculture and Agribusiness; Children and Youth; and Health and Nutrition.
Formerly known as the Michigan Agricultural Experiment Station, AgBioResearch is one of the largest research organizations at Michigan State University. Founded in 1888, it funds the work of nearly 400 scientists in six colleges at MSU to enhance agriculture, natural resources, and families and communities in Michigan.
