Our mission is to build interest and education worldwide in agriculture through applied learning, analysis, innovative practices, and technology.

Located in Waterloo, Iowa, USA

Hawkeye Community College is located in Waterloo, Iowa, USA, in the heart of agriculture production.

Iowa’s rich soils, ideal weather for crop production, transportation infrastructure, and many other factors make Iowa and the Cedar Valley a great place to produce agriculture commodities.
