  How ACES Relates To All  
  Nick Wherley  11/9/2020 2:11:00 PM  

Dear Educator Community,


Many of you know the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) inside and out. You can explain it in a heartbeat because you know and believe in our far-reaching impact.


We hope this insightful new video will help the students you interact with see just as clearly how ACES can grow their passion for changing the world.


Please watch this video and then share it with your students and their families. Here’s a preview:


  • The first part illustrates in an unforgettable way the importance of figuring out how to feed the world well with limited resources.
  • The second part – with the help of your “pause” button – allows you to explain ACES paths so students can see how they fit in.


Thank you for sharing this video with your students interested in food, environment, water, plants, families, communities, nutrition, animals, policy, technology, leadership and so much more.



Thank you for your ongoing partnership. We can’t wait to connect and show your students the rewarding college experiences in ACES that lead to impactful careers.
