Program Profile: Agriculture Entrepreneurship

“An Agriculture Entrepreneur, or Agripreneur, is a person who organizes, manages and assumes the risk of an agricultural enterprise or agribusiness.”

Agriculture needs innovative ideas and solutions to address the livelihoods and issues of rural communities, food security, production and resource efficiencies, and changing climate patterns.  The future of agriculture needs you!

“As a veteran that explored three of Oregon’s state universities, I can say without a doubt that Eastern Oregon University is best suited for my needs. My wife and I are both in school full-time, while I work a full-time job, we raise our two school-aged children, and I volunteer. The veterans’ staff at EOU is accommodating, helpful and prompt. They have always answered my questions quickly and provided me details on the best path to success. The EOU online learning environment is very well done. Being a distance learner, the faculty make it easy to learn, enjoy the process and be successful. I would highly encourage veterans to take the APEL course and allow your years of service to be an advantage for you in completing credits. Eastern Oregon is the right school for me and for ANY veteran trying to have a successful university experience.”
