Building economies and strengthening communities.

As part of the world’s largest industry, our work is about the economic and social impact of agriculture on local, regional, national and global scales. Our students, faculty and alumni work every day to build stronger communities and economies through business, law, public policy, trade, finance and in many other ways. This is accomplished through our partnerships with every sector of the agricultural industry.

Our mission is to seek and transmit socio-economic knowledge to the citizens of Alabama and the world. We achieve this through our work with other departments and programs throughout the College of Agriculture, the global agricultural industry and beyond.
