About Us

The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) is the first college established at Michigan State University, the pioneer land grant university. For more than 150 years, scientists, professors and students have worked to solve our most pressing problems.Whether across the state or around the world, CANR faculty, staff and alumni are finding ways to improve the health of families, the planet and animals. Feeding and fueling our global communities with the natural resources that we have today requires the brightest minds with the passion to make a difference for a brighter and better tomorrow.

Michigan State University Extension helps people improve their lives by bringing the vast knowledge and resources of MSU directly to individuals, communities and businesses. For more than 100 years, MSU Extension has helped grow Michigan's economy by equipping Michigan residents with the information they need to do their jobs better, raise healthy and safe families, build their communities and empower our children to dream of a successful future.

AgBioResearch encompasses the work of nearly 400 scientists in six colleges at MSU: Agriculture and Natural Resources, Communication Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Natural Science, Social Science and Veterinary Medicine. These researchers, in on-campus laboratories and at 14 outlying research centers across the state, investigate topics that range from agricultural production, alternative energy and biofuel production, food safety and environmental stewardship to childhood obesity, community development, and the quality of life of Michigan youth and families. Michigan citizens reap the benefits of this work in the form of new or improved foods and plants, new production methods and enriched lifestyles.

Collectively, AgBioResearch and MSU Extension represent research and programs that serve hundreds of thousands of Michigan residents and have more than a billion dollar impact on the state each year. In addition, every dollar the state spends is leveraged with additional dollars in federal funds and external contracts, grants and other revenues to serve the state's residents.

In order to more effectively and efficiently provide our educational events, this new centralized events management registration system has been developed. This system will allow users to easily create and manage online registration systems for their events.

For questions regarding the use of the registration system, please contact ANR Events Management at (517) 353-3175 or email events@anr.msu.edu.
