AECT Clubs & Organizations


The Department of Agricultural Education, Communications and Technology works with six organizations that give students the opportunity to become involved. Students often realize that getting involved in these organizations provides a way of making new friends and gaining skills that aide in their personal and professional growth. These organizations provide opportunities for students to improve their leadership and communication skills that will benefit them in the future.


Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow (ACT)

Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow is designed for students with an interest in agricultural communications and journalism. The organization, one of the strongest collegiate agriculture organizations nationally, gives members an opportunity to interact with others with similar interests professionally and at the college level.

Ag Mec Club

Agricultural Systems and Technology Club

The Ag Systems and Technology Club is an organization for all students interested in agricultural technology. In addition to monthly meetings and professional development trips, club members conduct (with ACT) a spring lawnmower tune-up clinic and assist with the Arkansas State FFA Agricultural Technology and Mechanical Systems CDE.


Collegiate 4-H

The purpose of a collegiate 4-H program is service, leadership development and professional development. Collegiate 4-H activities can range from working directly with state, county or local 4-H groups to serving as volunteer leaders for projects, educational workshops, contests, judging competitions or assisting with service projects. Additionally, Collegiate 4-H programs are to be actively involved in campus activities through the involvement in community service projects and promoting positive youth development.

Collegiate FB

Collegiate Farm Bureau

Collegiate Farm Bureau was formed in 2002 with support from the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation. Its goals are to motivate students to become involved in shaping agricultural policy for the state and nation. Members participate in several leadership development opportunities, including the State Collegiate Discussion Meet as well as the State Young Farmers and Ranchers Discussion Meet.

FFA Alumni
