The College of Agriculture was formally established in June 18, 1964 with the conversion of the erstwhile Central Luzon Agricultural College (CLAC) to what is now Central Luzon State University (CLSU). Basically, it serves as the foundation upon which the latter was organized.
As the first agricultural college in the country accredited by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU), it continues to work over a wide range of areas vital to the developing agricultural industry. Its degree courses and program of studies are concerned with the most recent aspects of agricultural science and technology and management. It has been designated by CHED as a Center of Excellence in Agricultural Education.
The College also supports other colleges of the university in their curricular offerings, particularly, the College of Veterinary Science and Medicine in offering BS in Animal Husbandry; the College of Education is offerings BS in Agricultural Extension Education and BS in Agricultural Education; the College of Engineering in offering BS in Agricultural Engineering; and the College of Home Science and Industry in offering BS in Food Technology and BS in Textile and Garment Technology; and the Institute of Graduate Studies in offering MS and PhD in Crop Science, Animal Science, Crop Protection, Soils and Agri –Management.
The College, since its establishment, has been tasked with the responsibility of providing quality education in agriculture and other related sciences. Through its facilities and competent faculty members and staff, it has continuously produced the necessary mechanism in promoting a relevant agricultural education in the country.
The College was founded with the purpose of meet-ing not only the needs of the agricultural industry but also the academic and research communities. Today, after four decades of growth and development, it aims to apply the following main activities:
- - undergraduate and graduate programs
- - research and development
- - extension services
- - production enterprise
To enhance effective learning, teaching is supple-mented with actual farm/Held practice. Further, faculty members with projects and research studies involve their students so they can bring firsthand knowledge while the latter experience current agricultural trends and requirements.
