Faith. Family. Farming. As one of only a handful of Christ-centered institutions in the country offering multiple degrees in agriculture, this phrase forms the foundation of Huntington University’s Haupert Institute for Agricultural Studies in Indiana. Launched in 2014, the Institute has become one of the fastest growing academic departments at Huntington University offering majors in agribusiness, agricultural education, crop science/agronomy, animal science and also pre-professional program in pre-veterinarian studies.

Students are able to take what they learn in the classroom and put it into practice and conduct observation and research at University-operated learning labs. These facilities and properties include: the 80-acre Thornhill Outdoor Learning Lab; the 10,000-square-foot Don Strauss Animal Science Education Center; the 25-acre Three Rivers Livestock Learning Lab; and the Ware Plant Science Production Facility/Greenhouse. Each student has the opportunity to join alongside the faculty and staff as production decisions and research-based learning take place at these facilities year-round which are located on or near campus.

Student outcomes continue to be an instrumental component of a student’s time at Huntington University. Each of the ag degrees require students complete at least one off-campus internship in the ag industry. Often, students will complete more than one internship as they explore available career options. Graduation, entry into graduate school and job placement continues to be a highlight of the Haupert Institute. Graduates have continued their education at institutions such as Michigan State University and The Ohio State University. Graduates work in ag industry fields including but not limited to: lending/banking, real estate, sales, marketing, crop protection, ag equipment, insurance, agronomy providers, commodity processing and retail feed stores.
