Agricultural Business and Technology Institute
The Fundraising Plan calls for raising $2 million to create the Agricultural Business and Technology Institute at Hartnell College, a reinvigorated agriculture program that will add many new courses, degree programs and certificates, and more than double the number of students over a period of three years. To learn more about the program visit the Agriculture website at www.hartnell.edu/agriculture
There are currently five advisory committees, covering roughly the seven areas of study that the institute will encompass: Agricultural Business/Marketing/Production; Post Harvest and Food Safety; Wine Studies and Viticulture; Precision Agriculture; and Agricultural Mechanics, Fabrication, and Diesel Technology. Two additional committees will be established in the next year in Forestry and Park Management and Equine Sciences.
Your gift makes a difference! Gifts of all sizes are welcome, and multi-year gifts also are accepted. You may make a gift that funds any portion of these identified needs, or you may fund the entire area. Please Give!
Naming opportunities for gifts of $25,000 or more are available on the campus. Donors who contribute $1,000 in a given year are recognized as members of the President's Council.
