Nutrien Strategic Partnerships

$10 Million Dollar Gift

In 2020, the College of Agricultural Sciences entered into a strategic partnership with Nutrien to further our strategic plan by supporting innovative research in sustainable agriculture, enhancing talent development, advancing diversity and inclusion in agriculture and enabling access through student scholarships.

This $10 million gift is the largest in the college’s history and is elevating CSU into a position of leadership in developing a diverse, highly skilled agricultural workforce while boosting Nutrien’s ability to deliver industry-leading products and solutions.

Acknowledging Nutrien Through Action and Impact

College of Agricultural Sciences’ newly remodeled and expanded Shepardson Building was renamed the Nutrien Agricultural Sciences Building.

Our new building will house impactful programs and people supported by the Nutrien gift. In recognition of this transformational gift our vision is to see the Nutrien Building becoming a home for Colorado agriculture, student aspirations, and agricultural innovation for local and global impact.
