Graduate Student Organization

Ag Economics Graduate Student Organization

Ag Econ GSO serves to enhance the experiences and outcomes for UK Ag Econ graduate students. We accomplish this as a liaison between graduate students and the faculty and staff of the Department of Agricultural Economics, provide and communicate opportunities for professional growth such as funding, conferences, or workshops, and most importantly, have events & adventures that give students a chance to get to know Kentucky agriculture, Lexington, and each other, a little better!


The purpose of the Ag Econ GSO is to act as liaison between Graduate Students and the Department of Agricultural Economics. We understand the challenges that you face and hope to make your experience with the University of Kentucky as pleasant as possible.
