A higher education challenge grant from the Cooperative State Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture was awarded to the College of Agriculture (COA) at Louisiana State University (LSU) to foster student awareness of the global agricultural environment. A series of workshops was held to assist COA faculty voluntarily add an international dimension to their courses/curricula. To measure the international agriculture knowledge of graduating seniors in the COA, an exit questionnaire was developed, tested, and administered on a voluntary basis. The findings indicated that the responding students were somewhat deficient in their knowledge of international agriculture. It was difficult to develop a single instrument to measure knowledge of international agriculture among students in the diverse curricula of the COA, even though only small knowledge differences were found by disciplinary area.
