The College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS) at Colorado State University (CSU) is well positioned to meet global challenges of a growing population that seeks food safety, food security and wellness through the sustainable use of natural resources. Our success requires a careful and comprehensive planning process that is aligned with the priorities of Colorado State University and the collective aspirations of staff, students and faculty in the College of Agricultural Sciences.
This strategic planning document is the culmination of engaged conversations with our internal and external stakeholders. It outlines the strategic direction and priorities for CAS over the next ten years. Our strategic direction is reflected in the vision and mission statements set forth in this document. These statements, in turn, are the primary consideration on which our goals and objectives are based.
