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.
Dear Friends of FAEIS:
As many of you may know, FAEIS Program Manager Bill Richardson had been struggling with cancer
over recent months. Up until the end, Bill had every intention of returning to work on FAEIS.
Unfortunately, he lost this struggle in mid-September. His final days were spent surrounded by friends
and fellow musicians. The Roanoke Times documented this outpouring of love on
its cover on Friday, September 12, 2014.
Bill impacted our lives and will be missed.
In the interim, our extremely talented student workers continue FAEIS’ day-to-day operations,
including responding to FAEIS helpdesk requests: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support.
We hope you will find FAEIS reports and data useful for your needs.
But we are mindful that every request is unique, so please feel to contact us any time -
email@example.com. Or call Mary Marchant at 540-231-1674 or the Help Desk at 540-231-4941.
