The Department of Bioresource Policy, Business and Economics in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources has changed to a new name to better align with the main focus areas in the department. The new name, the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ARE), encompasses agribusiness, agricultural and food policy, and resource and environmental economics, which are the primary teaching and research areas of the department.
