Who We Are
The International Agricultural Development (IAD) graduate group, launched in 1963 with a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, is one the reason why UC Davis remains the best in the world in agricultural sciences. The combination of students with world field experience and world-class faculty results in an impressive group of alumni leaders who are tackling complex rural development and agricultural challenges throughout the world. These leaders are passionate about feeding our planet’s growing population and improving the livelihoods of people in rural communities.
