Make Tomorrow Better

We are the
College of Agricultural Sciences

As the founding College of Oregon State University, for more than 150 years we have lived out our land-grant mission in education, research, and outreach. With renowned faculty working across interdisciplinary sciences, we partner with leading industries and organizations across the state and around the world to provide our students with hands-on opportunities to make a difference. The research we lead impacts the health of our critical natural resources and ecosystems, innovates better understanding of food systems and access to food, improves the resilience and competitiveness of our agricultural communities, and advances entrepreneurial ideas that change the way we grow and develop food to meet the needs of a growing and diverse population. We invite you to learn more about our mission, our work, and our people—in Oregon and around the world.

Faces of AgSci

I am a father of an adorable 20-month-old son, and a husband to an amazing Earth-loving woman. She is my rock, and my son is my drive. I am also an Electrician for the United States Coast Guard. Prior to my service, I was a mailman in Humboldt County, CA. An interesting fact about me is while I was in the Coast Guard, I sailed the Northwest Passage, starting out in Sitka, AK, making our way around Canada and ending in Baltimore, MD.
