The Department of Crop and Soil Environmental Sciences at Virginia Tech strives for pre-eminence in teaching, research, extension, and outreach to provide sustainable ecosystem management and improved environmental quality. We integrate sciences to deliver comprehensive solutions to the agricultural and environmental challenges of today and tomorrow.
We will meet the land-grant mission of Virginia Tech by improving crop plants, enhancing sustainable practices in crop production and land use, and increasing knowledge about human impacts on the environment through education, research, and outreach.
We value and reward excellence, integrity, respect, collegiality, effective communication, and resource stewardship. These values are essential to meet the land grant university’s commitment to the Commonwealth, the nation, and the global community.
