The Division is comprised of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) and two state agencies: the Oklahoma Agricultural Experiment Station and the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service.

DASNR strives to enhance human well-being and the sustainability of plant, animal and natural resource systems through basic and translational research, undergraduate and graduate teaching and extension. This will be accomplished by designing and implementing research, teaching and Extension programs addressing priority issues with respect to Oklahoma, the region, the nation and the world.
