Message from the Director
Welcome to the School of Agriculture!
Here you will find a pathway to success through classroom learning, in laboratory settings, at Pioneer Farm and other local farms, with industry partners – in the office and out in the field and through the variety of other experiences that UW-Platteville has to offer.
We highly value hands-on learning and students in all of our programs have the opportunity to work directly with animals, plants, soil, data, farmers and industry professionals as they learn alongside our dedicated faculty and staff.
We have an incredible amount of activity happening in all of our programs – from finding solutions to real-world problems through undergraduate research to building leadership with other students in clubs and organizations, student-managed businesses, internships, competition teams, and more.
Our faculty and staff take great pride in spending time getting to know our students through academic advising, working to find solutions in the classroom and the laboratory, and interacting in various high-impact opportunities like traveling for short-term study abroad trips, presenting undergraduate research outcomes at conferences, and learning by doing with our very successful competitive teams.
Thank you for your interest in the School of Agriculture at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. I invite you to explore our programs through our website and to contact me if you have any questions or want to learn more.
