CAES Strategic Plan

“CAES Preeminence: Horizon 2023,” the strategic plan of the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, incorporates a set of five strategic goals consistent with those of “A&T Preeminence: Taking the Momentum to 2023” and “Higher Expectations: Strategic Plan for the University of North Carolina.”

This plan focuses on the contributions the CAES will make to fulfilling its mission as the land-grant arm of the university. The goals, strategies and initiatives outlined in this strategic plan span the areas of student success, research and innovation, outreach and engagement, resource stewardship, and diversity and inclusion. The plan also drives inter-disciplinary collaborations and partnerships around the college’s tripartite mission of teaching, research and outreach.
