The PIE Center responds to the many economic, environmental and social challenges we face by measuring the knowledge, behaviors and attitudes of consumers and constituents. The PIE Center then shares its findings with stakeholders through educational outreach and training programs using cutting-edge technology.
By taking an interdisciplinary approach to examining how people think about, form and act on opinions regarding complex agricultural and natural resources issues, PIE Center research and outreach ultimately focus on enabling the public and policymakers to make informed decisions to preserve Florida's agricultural and natural resources assets.
The UF/IFAS Center for Public Issues Education conducts and disseminates objective interdisciplinary research and educational programs to increase public understanding of and engagement in agricultural and natural resources issues.
PIE Center faculty and staff, with input and approval from the advisory board, created a strategic plan to focus its various research, education, outreach and extension efforts through the next three years. The goals and objectives established in the strategic plan will be the driving force behind the PIE Center's continued growth.
Every state has a land-grant university, but nobody else has a PIE Center.
The PIE Center is a fantastic resource — to people in agriculture and natural resources, absolutely, but also for the general public.
Our community has benefited greatly from the support and encouragement of the PIE Center.
I always look forward to seeing how we can take the research and turn those results into practical advice and strategies for our growers.
