Agriculture companies are desperate for workers according to NPR's Morning Edition podcast.

Student Ambassadors

In the spirit of Ut Prosim, our ambassadors take on this role to serve! From answering questions about AAEC classes, inquiries about campus, and hosting prospective students and families visiting campus for the department. These students help students feel reassured and welcomed and assist faculty and staff with student body needs.
