AgDiscovery Summer Enrichment Program

AgDiscovery Program
 
AgDiscovery is a two-week summer outreach program to help students learn about careers in animal science, veterinary medicine, agribusiness, regulatory science and plant pathology. Participants, ages 14-17, live on UAPB’s campus and learn about agricultural science from university professors, practicing veterinarians and professionals working for the U.S. government. Students chosen for AgDiscovery participate in hands-on labs, workshops, field trips and other activities. The program is sponsored by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

“The AgDiscovery camp helped me decide what career path I wanted to follow and that UAPB was the college choice for me,” says past AgDiscovery participant and counselor Elaina Buckner. “I attribute my academic success partly to the AgDiscovery program because it opened my eyes to many different career paths in agriculture and in APHIS.”

Announcement: AgDiscovery 2019 has been cancelled due to historic flooding in the state of Arkansas. The decision follows the Presidential Disaster Declaration for 16 Arkansas counties, including Jefferson County. For more information, contact Willie Columbus at 870-575-7145 or columbusw@uapb.edu.
