Higher Education Challenge Grant Summary

AGRIPEDIA began as a set of instructional notes for a single course at the University of Kentucky, GEN 100 - Issues in Agriculture - and has grown to include class notes and material from many classes (see class menu). In keeping with the philosophy of the Agriculture College, AGRIPEDIA is designed to demonstrate the complexity of agriculture and the manifold effects that every issue creates.

This web-based project was made possible by USDA Higher Education Programs, more specifically, the Higher Education Challenge Grants Program. The USDA Higher Education Challenge Grants Program "promotes excellence in undergraduate teaching programs in the food and agricultural sciences. Projects selected competitively and supported under this program address state, regional, national, or international educational needs, involve creative or novel approaches toward addressing such needs, encourage and facilitate better working relationships in the university science and education community, and result in benefits which transcend project duration and USDA support."

This project is the result of cooperation among many departments within the College, most notably the College of Agriculture Office of Undergraduate Instruction, Ag. Communications Services, including the Distance Learning section, as well as numerous faculty members in various departments within the College of Agriculture.
