Privacy Policy

The National Council for Agricultural Education (The Council) is committed to respecting the privacy of stakeholders. Our privacy policy governs the collection and use of personal information, whether gathered by our staff, website visitors or through correspondence, and it reflects our approach to gathering and disseminating data. Our policy is to only use data collected for purposes that are integral to furthering the mission of The Council and agricultural education.

Who We Are

The National Council for Agricultural Education strives to stimulate positive growth in agricultural education. Since its beginning in December 1983, The Council has provided leadership for stakeholders in agriculture, food, fiber and natural resources systems education. It strives to surface issues important to agricultural education and stimulate actions to support those issues. The Council serves as a common meeting ground for agricultural education and represents organizations and entities representing students, teachers, teacher educators, state leaders, alumni, industry, and government. The Council promotes success for students and teachers who participate in the formal agricultural education instructional programs offered in grades seven through adult throughout the 50 states and three U.S. territories.

Coordination with the Educational Community
