Riverland Community College, with campuses in Albert Lea, Austin, and Owatonna, has a new beginning in agricultural education after offering Farm Business Management education for many years. 

Dr. Adenuga Atewologun, who holds a doctorate in agricultural engineering, and his team created Riverland's 2013 strategic plan, "The Blueprint for Excellence," that identified agriculture as a top priority over the years ahead and identifies Austin campus as the anchor site for the programs that will serve students across the region. The Hormel Foundation collaborated with Riverland and conducted three Ag Summits in 2014, 2015, and 2016 to discuss possibilities through discussions with local business leaders, producers and educators.

Riverland has six new agricultural programs including Precision Agriculture, Food Science, Food Science Technology, Agricultural Sciences, Biotechnology, and Agribusiness. These programs join Riverland's established Farm Business Management program, one of the college's most popular programs.
