Science Policy Education

Science, technology, engineering and mathematics are an essential element of the future competitiveness in the world of the United States. To better secure the future of American agriculture, forest, grazing, and wetland sciences, the U.S. must invest in science education and workforce development programs. Our nation must expand the capacity and diversity of the STEM workforce to prepare more students for the best jobs of the future that will keep the U.S. innovative, secure and competitive.

Funding for Science Education and Workforce Development supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute for Food and Agriculture (USDA-NIFA), Agricultural Research Service (USDA ARS), Land-Grant University System (LGU), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Science Foundation (NSF), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is essential to secure the health of Americans as well as the future of American Agriculture, forest, grazing and wetland science.
