The Charles E. Barnhart Fund for Excellence was created to honor Dr. Barnhart, dean of the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment from 1969-1988. The Barnhart Fund supports activities that enhance excellence in College of Agriculture, Food and Environment programs.

Annually, the Barnhart Fund for Excellence Committee, comprised of faculty and staff and appointed to three-year terms by the dean, seeks proposals for projects/programs to be supported by the fund. Such proposals might include, but not be limited to workshops/conferences, nationally or internationally renowned speakers to give major presentations, programmatic initiatives with an excellence theme, and student enrichment and development activities.
