WSU Seeks Funding for Agriculture Degree Program in Everett

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - Washington State University is seeking $832,000 from the state to launch agriculture-related degree programs at its Everett campus.

           

The funds would be used to launch four degree programs at WSU North Puget Sound, which is headquartered on the campus of Everett Community College.

           

The request went to Gov. Jay Inslee last month. Inslee will consider including it in his 2016 supplemental budget proposal, which is due in December.

           

If the funding is approved, WSU officials say they would bring their Organic Agriculture Systems degree program to Everett in 2017. The degree is currently offered at the main campus in Pullman. Degrees in agriculture and food security, sustainable food systems and urban horticulture are also planned.
