The Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communication extends the land-grant university mission through poverty awareness, culture-centered communication, environmental education and adult leadership programs. ALEC reaches the state's residents through the "Ranger Nick" video series and the Advancing Georgia's Leaders in Agriculture and Forestry program.
The "Ranger Nick" video series features ALEC Professor Nick Fuhrman sharing his wildlife wisdom on Georgia Farm Bureau's "Farm Monitor" show. He also uses this role in his classes to keep his students engaged.
This joint program by the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources develops high-potential, high-performing individuals within the agriculture, forestry and natural resources industries to become dynamic professionals.
