Agriculture & Water Center of Excellence
The Agriculture and Water Center of Excellence will be built in two phases. Phase I will consist of the most pressing needs to be addressed to further advance Northeast’s agriculture programs. The buildings that will be constructed in Phase I include a new Veterinary Technician building, a new Large Animal Handling Facility and relocated college farm and feedlot operations. Northeast needs to raise $23 million to begin construction on those first three projects.
The Precision and Mechanized Agriculture building has been identified as the next priority facility to be completed once additional funds are secured.
Phase II of the Nexus campaign will be reliant on continued public support. The Phase II construction projects include an agriculture classroom building, a new state-of-the-art greenhouse, an innovation and demonstration center, and expansion of the Chuck Pohlman Agriculture Complex.
