On July 1, the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture became the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. The new name better communicates the broad depth and evolving scope of the college’s degrees and programs.

The change incorporates the college’s expanded role that occurred nearly a decade ago with the merger of the College of Human Environmental Sciences into the College of Agriculture and also responds to new needs and opportunities. Research, teaching, and outreach programs within the college encompass farms, forests, food, fiber, families, and communities.

“While we continue our fundamental ties to production agriculture, we have expanded to include all the pervasive and essential enterprises based on renewable natural resources,” said Scott Smith, dean of the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. “We are aligned with the wider and more diverse interests of those we serve, including a new and rapidly growing population of undergraduate students. And across Kentucky, many now see agriculture to include not only farming, but also agribusinesses and the full reach of food systems from local to global.”

Agriculture, food, and environmental systems are key components of Kentucky’s economic future, and the college is playing a prominent role in those areas with its programs, Smith said
