In 2016 we launched our first Collegiate Ambassador Program at Penn State University. The mission of our Ambassador Program is to promote academic and professional advancement by empowering Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ+) collegiate agriculturists.
The Collegiate Ambassador Program bridges the gap between agriculture and the LGBTQ+ community by providing professional development resources and creating career pipelines. We strive to connect LGBTQ+ agriculture students to agriculture companies leading efforts in workplace equality.
The Students for Cultivating Change provides a safe, inclusive network for students interested in agricultural sciences who are in the LGBTQ community. Focusing our efforts in education, community, and increasing awareness, we also strive to promote inclusion and visibility for LGBTQ individuals within the College of Agricultural Sciences and larger Penn State community.

We are currently looking for university partners with agriculture programs to help us build a global network. Let's have a conversation if you feel your university could be a potential thought partner!
