Overview of the AgDiscovery Summer Program
Beginning Summer 2011, USDA-APHIS and others, including the USDA-Forest Service, partnered with the College of Agricultural, Environmental, and Natural Sciences (now College of Agriculture, Environment and Nutrition Sciences – CAENS) to launch AgDiscovery at Tuskegee University. Similar to the AgriTREK Summer Institute, AgDiscovery is an outreach program to help students learn about careers in animal science, veterinary medicine, agribusiness and plant pathology. This 2-3 week program allows participants to live on a college campus and learn about Agricultural science from university professors, practicing veterinarians and professionals working for the U.S. Government. Students chosen to participate in AgDiscovery will gain experience through hands-on labs, workshops, field trips and other group and team building activities.
