Fighting world hunger. Building sustainable housing. Saving the Chesapeake Bay. The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources is at the heart of the University of Maryland’s original land-grant mission to serve the state and improve the quality of life in Maryland and beyond. Students and faculty are investigating important contemporary topics including food and water safety, nutrition and human health, genomics, biotechnology, animal diseases and welfare, and the environment. Your support can ensure that faculty, students and facilities have the resources needed to keep pace with emerging diseases, threats to our food supply or new environmental risks.
