Farm & Industry Short Course

UW-Madison College of Agricultural & Life Sciences

The Farm and Industry Short Course (FISC) is a unique short-term, hands-on educational program for people who want to develop or expand the skills needed to work in production agriculture.

Administered by the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the program has been offered each winter since 1885, providing opportunities for generations to expand their agricultural career options.

Classes begin in late fall and end in early spring—timed to coordinate with the farming off-season in the Midwest and with the UW-Madison academic calendar.

In just 16 weeks, students earn a certificate in Foundations of Farm Management. Curriculum includes courses in soils, crops, dairy, meat animals, agricultural engineering, farm business planning, agribusiness, human relations and communications.

In addition to managing the curriculum, FISC operates two residence halls (Humphrey and Jorns Halls) that house the majority of the students enrolled in the program.

These dormitories serve as a short-term housing option for other programs when FISC is not in session.

The Director of UW-Madison’s Farm and Industry Short Course is responsible for the oversight of all aspects of this revenue-generating program, ranging from marketing, recruitment and admissions, to academic policies, budgeting, and strategic planning. Information on FISC is available at https://fi sc.cals.wisc.edu/

The full job posting is at http://jobs.hr.wisc.edu/cw/en-us/job/496952/farm-and-industry-short-course-fisc-director.

The deadline for preferred consideration is January 15th, 2018
