The RAC was the first agricultural college in the English speaking world.
Queen Victoria granted the Royal Charter to the College in 1845.
Sovereigns have been patrons ever since, visiting the college in every reign. His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales became President in 1984.
The College motto is Avorum Cultus Pecorumque, meaning ‘caring for the fields and the beasts'. The College continues to enact its educational, research and consultancy commitment in keeping with this motto.
