Student Advancement Team

The Agricultural Communications degree program is developing a small team of students to assist with outreach efforts for our major. You can think of this team as “Ag Ambassadors” exclusively for our degree program. Many high school students don’t know that agricultural communications exists as a career field, and we are working to develop more materials and strategies to reach those students.

We would love to have your input, skills, and a bit of your time to help us grow as a program. If you are interested in assisting with this effort AND in developing your communications skills in a real-world setting, contact Dr. Katie Burke, UM 309 or email, kjburke@ksu.edu

Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow

There are many ways to get involved in clubs and activities at K-State. Whether it's a club related to your major or participating in a community service project, the opportunities are endless. Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow is for those who want to communicate within the broad realm of agriculture. Our meetings include social, professional, and business aspects and are a great way to meet students in the agricultural communications major, as well as others. The group offers many opportunities for those looking to obtain further experience in communications. We are excited about this year and all that we have to offer! Look on this page, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages, for more information.
