Agriculture built North Carolina, and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences grew the leaders that made it possible. Developing future leaders – both in and outside of agriculture and life sciences – is at the core of who we are and what we do.
We believe developing strong leaders that can lead and influence the implementation of new technologies and create sound public policy will determine whether or not our world is well-nourished. So we’re hard at work preparing the next generation of agriculture and life sciences leaders for North Carolina and beyond.
CALS leadership programs – for youth, students, faculty/staff and external stakeholders – will equip leaders not only to generate big ideas, but also to master the skills necessary to turn those ideas into reality.
We are committed to developing leaders who will create social and economic prosperity here at home – and around the world.
