A guiding force for the 'New California'
With agriculture in the spotlight more than ever before, the Jordan College enrollment has doubled in size the last decade and provides a record +2,500 students with a quality, hands-on education in the nation's leading and most diverse agricultural area.
The Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology's seven departments offer outstanding programs to prepare leaders in the traditional areas of agriculture.
Our 1,000-acre on-campus University Agricultural Laboratory gives students, classes and faculty unparalleled access to the nation’s most productive and diversified agricultural area through study, research and work experience.
Emphasizing student, faculty and industry research partnerships
Made possible by a generous gift from the Bud and Dee Jordan family, the $24.5 million Jordan Agricultural Research Center is the first of its kind on a CSU campus.
Designed to change and grow with the latest scientific needs, the 30,000-foot facility opened in 2016 to link agriculture, science, mathematics and engineering students and faculty with industry leaders to nurture a cohesive research environment.
Under the direction of Jordan College Dean Sandra Witte and Fresno State President Joseph Castro, Fresno State is committed to expanding its offerings to agricultural students and the San Joaquin Valley, evidenced in reports by the President's Commission on the Future of Agriculture and Water Task Force.
