Support Agriculture at Concordia
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.
Access and Awareness
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 in industry events and conventions and through direct engagement, in addition to the promotion of our university. By offering attractive scholarship packages for our students, we will work toward staying competitive with established public university programs. Donor support will enhance both awareness and 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 businesses 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.
Nebraska Ag Summit
Concordia hosts the Nebraska Ag Summit, where high school students spend the day immersed in the industry, learning about the latest technology and trends through interactive sessions hosted by local experts.
