Centralizing agriculture classes in one area of campus maximizes efficiencies and allows for more integrated learning opportunities amongst faculty and programs.
Agriculture Classrooms and lab space has not kept up with the large growth in the programs, and current facilities do not allow for any further growth.
- Northeast’s agriculture enrollment has doubled since 1996
- Classes, labs and offices are located in four buildings throughout the main campus, the college farm, and the Chuck M. Pohlman Agriculture Complex, requiring some faculty and students to make the 4.5-mile round-trip among facilities several times a day
- Labs are often crowded and lack sufficient storage space for equipment
