The Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems (CIAS) is a sustainable agriculture and food systems research center in the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

CIAS fosters multidisciplinary inquiry and supports a range of research, outreach and training projects. It brings together university faculty, farmers, policy makers and others to study relationships between farming practices and profitability, the structure of the food system, the environment, and rural vitality.

Because CIAS was created to build sustainable agriculture and food systems research programs that respond to farmer and citizen needs, relationships are at the core of everything we do.
