Proudest Accomplishment for Alfred State College


My proudest accomplishment was a transformational vision and strategy that turned around an economically distressed farm laboratory into an organic “Smart Farm” which today attracts national and international attention. There is optimism in the community that the Smart Farm will create much-needed economic vibrancy in Western New York. This is an innovative framework for economic development through the integration of agriculture and leading edge technologies. Further, for the first time in its hundred-year history, the college secured an unprecedented five million dollars in state funding in its very first year of implementing this plan. This was due to collaboration, teamwork, and strategic thinking of dedicated educators and community leaders.
