Support a Global Leader
The Department of Plant Pathology has been responding to disease threats to agricultural fields, forests, and urban landscapes for more than a century. We have trained generations of field-shaping leaders in plant pathology. And we have provided exceptional research-based information to agriculture professionals for many decades.
We remain global leaders in plant pathology today and continue to adapt our research, teaching, and Extension efforts to respond to contemporary needs and opportunities. While institutional support and research grants from public and private entities remain critical to work we do, contributions from donors play an increasingly important role in helping the Department remain an agile, adaptable, and highly effective world leader. Your dollars, time, and advocacy support our research, teaching, and Extension mission, helping us delve into new fields of science, expand education and outreach programs, update facilities, and provide contemporary training opportunities for our students. We are grateful for your support and look forward to meeting and exceeding your expectations!
