The Birth Of CASE: 1995-Present
CASE has a wonderful history, an exciting present, and a very promising future, and proudly embodies, cherishes, and perpetuates the rich historical legacy of all our illustrious predecessor institutions: Government Farm School (GFS), Jamaica School of Agriculture (JSA), College of Agriculture (COA), and Passley Gardens Teachers’ College (PGTC).
In 1995, based on a recommendation of the Sherlock Report, the COA was merged with the PGTC into one institution: the College of Agriculture, Science and Education (CASE).
With both institutions sharing the same location, this provided the opportunity to create a multi-disciplinary institution aimed at offering high quality, values-based education to its students. Among tertiary educational institutions in Jamaica, CASE is distinctly unique: it is the only tertiary institution dedicated to the training of students in the “art and science” of agriculture and allied disciplines.
This represents CASE’s niche – the space to develop truly creative and innovative academic programmes that are aligned with its mandate, human and physical resource capabilities, and national imperatives.
As a multi-disciplinary tertiary institution with a rich and storied heritage dating back to 1910, the College of Agriculture, Science and Education, offers students a unique opportunity to obtain higher-level education in some of the most sought after professions.
