As the second largest undergraduate college at Cornell University and the third largest college of its kind in the United States, it is imperative for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences to have high-level teaching. Our faculty and teaching facilities are among the finest anywhere, and the college's educational programs are carefully designed to ensure that every student's education is geared to contemporary, real-world issues. With our teaching — one of the three components of our land-grant mission along with research and extension — we strive to improve the nation's food supply and maintain its safety, to enhance the environment, and to help people improve their lives.
