Don B. Huntley College of Agriculture Receives $18.5 Million

The university will receive $18.5 million from the 2022-23 California budget as part of a $75 million investment in California State University campuses to combat the effects of climate change on agriculture and food industries. The funding for university farms highlights the critical role of educational workforce development in transforming the agriculture industry to meet California’s ambitious climate goals. “Our talented students and faculty are already leading innovation in the agriculture and food science industries,” said Martin Sancho-Madriz, interim dean of the Huntley College of Agriculture. “And with this commitment of state funds, they will have access to additional state-of-the-art technology to increase their ability to contribute to climate-forward research and drive change in agriculture.”
