AgrIInstitute: Leadership, Cultivated

AgrIInstitute prepares leaders to advance agriculture and serve the industries related communities. AgIInstitute serves a robust network of agriculture and rural leaders through leadership development and meaningful dialogue on matters that enhances the capacity of the industry’s most important asset — People.  Programming to support leadership and communication about important agriculture and rural community topics is at the core of all AgrIInstitute initiatives.

A cornerstone of the AgrIInstitute programming is the Indiana Agricultural Leadership Program (ALP).

ALP involves a series of seminars that are designed to seed knowledge and advance the capacity of agricultural leadership. These educational opportunities are unique to each class experience and planned to build core competencies that foster leadership and personal development.

The work of AgrIInstitute is supported through participation fees, grants, event fundraising and donations from individuals and corporate investors who are committed to leadership cultivated and connected in agriculture and rural communities. AgrIInstitute’s generous donors provide approximately 75% of the total participation costs for each participant in the Agricultural Leadership Program, keeping it an affordable leadership develop program.

Together we Seed Knowledge, Grow Skills, Nurture the Passion, and Connect Leaders for a strong industry.
