In 2018, the department embarked on a new 5-year strategic plan for ASREC to develop a vision and set the center on a course to be a premier resource to support the department’s and university’s Land-Grant missions.
The strategic plan offers specific recommendations to support the core missions of discovery, learning and engagement:
Prepare students for successful and fulfilling careers in animal science by expanding the reach of ASREC to additional undergraduate students.
Facilitate responsiveness to researchers’ needs by providing high-quality animals in appropriate housing with expert husbandry.
Deliver extension programming more widely through online efforts and coordination among stakeholders.
