At Concordia, we are uniquely positioned to equip students to serve throughout the agriculture industry. Our tight-knit campus is located near some of the most productive farmland in the world, our expansion into academic agriculture has been met with resounding support within Nebraska, the industry and the Christian church.
Awareness and Access
As a new option for studying agriculture in Nebraska, we need to spread the word to let prospective students, partners and employers know about this program. We’ll do this through targeted messaging, participating at industry events and conventions and through direct engagement, in addition to our promotion of our university as a whole. By offering attractive scholarship packages for our students, we will work toward staying competitive with established public university programs. Donor support will enhance both the awareness and the access at this important early stage of this program’s development.
Agriculture, by its very nature, requires field experience. Situated in the midst of both producers and business involved in animal science, plant science, food science, and agribusiness, Seward County will be Concordia’s farm. Philanthropic investment will enable us to give our students hands-on learning opportunities through engagement with the industry by providing funding for site visits, intensive learning events, industry summits and for building strategic partnerships.
Volunteers steer campaign success
Nearly two months after the completion of Concordia’s five-year Answering The Call fundraising campaign, it’s still difficult for many to read the results without raised eyebrows and exclamations of “That’s amazing!” The campaign ultimately raised an unprecedented $93 million for Concordia.
