The College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) carries out UW–Madison’s mission through excellence in teaching, research and public outreach across academic fields ranging from production agriculture and natural resources to social sciences and fundamental life sciences. By encouraging collaboration and innovation among these fields, the college helps address problems and create opportunities that affect food, environment, and health.

At its core, the college fosters communities of expertise – among researchers, faculty and students in cooperation with business, industry and government. It has a rich history of finding practical answers to everyday challenges such as breeding hybrid crops, revitalizing the state’s agricultural markets, and identifying vitamins essential to human health.

Private support helps CALS build on a tradition of excellence, innovation, accountability and practicality. Working with the CALS development team, the college has identified these funding priorities as it tackles 21st century problems:
