Be an Agripreneur

The new Agriculture Entrepreneurship (AE) degree program is about developing and harnessing the Entrepreneurial Spirit! This spirit encompasses creativity, critical thinking, innovative problem-solving and the ability to change perceptions and enhance your future livelihood.

Agriculture needs innovative ideas and solutions to address the current and future issues of rural communities and livelihoods, food security, production and resource efficiencies, and changing climate patterns. The future of agriculture needs you!

“The EOU Theatre Department is in large part responsible for setting me on the path that I’m on today. I have a successful career as an actor because the faculty in this department showed me how to pursue it, and kept telling me that it was possible, even when I was unsure of myself. They continually encouraged me to reach farther, to dig deeper, and to be more than I thought I could be, both on stage and off. Perhaps most significantly, they showed me the vital importance of empathy and compassion in the theatre – a lesson I’ve never forgotten, and one that has carried me through the entirety of my career.”
