Clark State Community College
Clark State Community College is a public, two-year higher education institution located in Springfield, Ohio, with campuses in Beavercreek and Bellefontaine. Clark State offers associate degrees and certificates in over 125 academic areas and has a total enrollment of over 6,500 students. Clark State Community College has one of the most extensive and long-standing agriculture offerings found at any community college in Ohio.
Clark State’s agriculture program began in 1962, and since then has continued to adapt its curriculum to fit the needs of farmers and employers in the region and in Ohio. Now Clark State’s agriculture program has over 120 students enrolled and offers one of only two agriculture business degrees at community colleges in the state.
Clark State has developed the region’s only for-credit degree program in precision agriculture — one that provides students not only with classroom-based learning, but with hands-on technical training at the Airpark Ohio UAS test range, located at the Springfield Municipal Airport, and is focused on data analytics. This state-of-the-art lab and partnerships with local farmers and businesses provide real data in real time for real results — for real world experiences that bring precision agriculture to life.
