engaged in tackling the most important issues of our time

At the School of Agriculture and Environmental Science, we are engaged in tackling the most important issues of our time – global issues like the environment and food. Most importantly, we are producing graduates that can step into these conversations and jobs to solve these challenges.

We are building on our legacy while recognizing that solutions to these issues are found by working between departments and across the College. In the words of our founder, Joseph Krauskopf, we take “science with practice” seriously. Today, we use our more than one thousand acres of beautifully maintained land as a functional learning environment, creating a real-life, open-air classroom for many of our disciplines. We connect classroom knowledge with real-world experience to give students both the theory and practice, a defining difference of a DelVal education.

We offer agriculture and environmental sciences students the opportunity to achieve their academic goals while exploring the unique learning environment that only land, farms, animals, greenhouses and open space can provide. Students see the full spectrum of agriculture production, to problem solve, to gain valuable experience, to develop as leaders and serve their community.

At DelVal, students earn the degree and the education so they are prepared to tackle not only the most important issues of our time, but the issues most important to them.
