Welcome to the Food and Agricultural Education Information System, an online database which has resided in the
College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Virginia Tech since 2002.
FAEIS is a cooperative effort between USDA-NIFA, Virginia Tech and over 200 colleges and departments of agriculture, natural resources and human sciences.
The Food and Agricultural Education Information System (FAEIS) team sincerely appreciates
the leadership of Dr. Mary Marchant, who served as Project Director from 2007 to 2014 and as co-PD in 2006. Key accomplishments during this time included
- a resolution in support of continued funding for FAEIS by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities’ (APLU)-Board on Agriculture, initiated by the APLU-Academic Programs’ Section;
- celebration of FAEIS’ 30th anniversary in 2013;
- scholarly publications and presentations to various outlets including refereed articles in the North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture (NACTA) Journal; and
- national outreach to such outlets as the Wall Street Journal, Farm News and Fox News regarding enrollments in higher education.
“Over the past eight years, I am grateful to and appreciate the support of FAEIS’ stakeholders,
FAEIS funder the U.S. Department of Agriculture-National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA-NIFA),
Virginia Tech’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and my home department,
the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics.
I enjoyed working with all of you, and especially Bill Richardson.
We were a good team that complemented each other’s strengths. As FAEIS moves forward, the project is in good hands under the new leadership of Drs. Susan Sumner and Pete Ziegler. We are working together for a smooth transition.”
We hope you will find FAEIS reports and data useful for your needs.
