Welcome to Senior Executive Service (SES)

You are now part of a group men and women charged with leading the continuing transformation of government. Since 1862, the public servants of the USDA have worked diligently to improve the lives of millions of our fellow Americans. Because the work we do affects every American, every single day, we are known as the “People’s Department.”

And now, you are part of this proud history of public service and the important work we do. Welcome to the USDA.

Please view this  welcome video for you from the Secretary of the Department of Agriculture, Thomas Vilsack.

You may learn more about Secretary Thomas Vilsack and Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Kathleen A. Merrigan by reading their biographies.
