The University of Kentucky, College of Agriculture, Food and Environment (CAFE), Office of Diversity (OOD) in collaboration with our Center for Student Success have partnered together to target 25-30 underserved and underrepresented high school students across the Commonwealth with a vested interest in being a perspective student in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. 

The Ag for All conference helps prepare students with applying to college, specifically UK CAFE, and how to apply and access scholarships, FASFA, and encourage faculty and student engagement while in attendance. 

Join us for the 2nd Annual Ag is for All Conference

The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment (CAFE) and its Office of Diversity invites future students and their families to the "Ag is for All" Conference happening Tuesday, November 1.

Like many other industries, agriculture is full of little-known professions and areas of study. Similarly, agriculture is full of unsung heros.

The purpose of this event is to highlight underrepresented CAFE professors, community partners, and shine the spotlight on the important work they do - in research labs, food banks, conservation efforts and beyond.

Who should attend? While the day's content will be geared towards high school students from underrepresented backgrounds, all future University of Kentucky students are welcome to attend.
