About CALS

From the university’s highly-ranked undergraduate business program to innovative teaching, research and outreach in communication, development sociology, landscape architecture, environmental sciences, biological sciences, and other fields, CALS offers a broad spectrum of programs that complement our historic and powerful agricultural roots. Our diverse portfolio of faculty, staff and students enables us to address challenges associated with feeding the burgeoning global population in the context of a changing climate that will stress many crops with heat and either drought or flooding, attack from ever-evolving pathogens and pests, and limits on agricultural practices that threaten boundary conditions for planetary stability. Our scientists address needs that range from strengthening regional economies—from farm to market—to making urban environments more livable right here in New York State and around the globe.
