Our Interdisciplinary Approach
Creating a Digital Agriculture Community
An interdisciplinary approach to digital agriculture and advanced analytics requires strengthening faculty connections across programs, initiatives, colleges and the university at large, including multiple campuses and experiment stations. This interdisciplinary approach is anchored by a board of directors who leads the institute and fosters collaboration by partnering with faculty investigators and working strategically across the K-State community to identify funding for larger, coordinated efforts.
Board of Directors
The board of directors team is comprised by representatives from K-State's College of Agriculture, College of Arts and Sciences and Carl R. Ice College of Engineering. The mission of the ID3A aligns with the the Next-Gen K-State Strategic Plan by intentionally teaming experts from across disciplines to solve complex challenges.
