Dean's Council

Created in 2012, the Dean’s Council is a devoted group of alumni and friends of the College of Agriculture & AgCenter who support the academic priorities and goals of the College through their annual investment of $1,000 or more to the Dean’s Excellence Fund.

Gifts to the Dean’s Excellence Fund are instrumental in providing us with the tools necessary to address pressing needs as they arise and enhance the college’s tradition of preparing leaders in agriculture. Private funding is crucial for the College to have the resources to recruit and retain the best and brightest students. 

Dean’s Council membership requires an annual donation of $1,000, which can easily be divided into monthly, quarterly, or biannual payments upon request.

Alumni and friends under 40 have the opportunity to become associate members of the Dean’s Council. This membership requires an annual contribution of $500 to the Dean’s Excellence Fund. Associate Dean’s Council members will receive all benefits of full membership.

Member Benefits:

  • Invitations to events hosted by the College, including the annual Dean’s Council dinner and Hall of Honor Ceremony
  • Recognition on the website and the College’s annual magazine, Advances.
  • Opportunities to connect with college leadership and university leadership
  • Membership in the College’s Alumni & Friends Association
