To conduct research, education, and outreach and to provide technical assistance in order to improve sustainability of agricultural productivity and natural resource management, to protect and restore natural ecosystems threatened by agricultural activities to prevent loss of biodiversity, and to improve the quality of life for people living in humid tropical and subtropical regions.

The Center approaches this mission through graduate education, collaborative research with international and domestic partners, outreach, and technical support services. Such activities are supported in part by the office of the Senior Vice President for Agriculture and Natural Resources and also through international assistance contracts and grants.
