JULY 7–20, 2019
Harvest products from the organic farm, examine fish species at our aquaculture center, learn how to detect plant disease in our plant and soil lab, and explore urban farming opportunities during your experience at Lincoln University. You’ll gain a new understanding of animal and plant science and its importance on a national and global scale through hands-on activities in many different areas: animal science, such as pregnancy examinations of cattle; aquaculture; biohazards; aquaponics; nutrition; and urban gardening. The program includes several formats to engage in leadership development and critical thinking rooted in agricultural issues. You will also learn about different cultures, career fields, and cutting-edge practices in agriculture. Part of your stay will be in air-conditioned log cabins nestled in the woods at the university-owned Busby Farm. The remainder of your nights will be spent in our student housing dormitory on the main campus.
As the oldest of the 1890 land-grant schools, the main Lincoln University campus has 169 acres located on a hilly prominence with a panoramic view of Jefferson City, MO.
