Dr. Green receives Teaching Award

Dr. Steve Green 

 Dr. Steven Green, professor of soil and water conservation, received the Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching. In the nomination, Green's students said he is always well prepared for class, he returns graded work quickly, and he is very helpful to those who need special assistance. He constantly challenges students to think for themselves. A faculty member at A-State since 2006, he completed his doctoral program at Purdue.

Over the past 100 years, ASU has evolved from a regional school of agricultural instruction to a comprehensive university. The College of Agriculture and Technology has also evolved throughout the years. While education is still our primary mission, we also have extensive public outreach programming and research activities.

Graduates ready for career advancement

We prepare our graduates for entry and career advancement in the food, fiber and natural resources industry, which involves production (farming), agribusiness and value added processing, public service and rural leadership; and for entry and advancement in the manufacturing and industrial technology industries.

We offer both undergraduate and master’s degrees within the college, and we participate in doctoral education through the interdisciplinary Environmental Sciences and Molecular Biosciences programs.
