From the Dean: Source Summer 2016
From the Dean
Discovering Extension in every county
This year, we are bringing greater awareness to the many ways Extension reaches all corners of Minnesota. In 2016, I will visit all our regional offices and as many counties as possible.
It is always so inspiring to spend time in Greater Minnesota—to see our work, meet with our staff and partners, and find more ways to highlight Extension's education, research and impact.
During these trips, I am visiting with Extension employees in the regional offices, meeting with donors and partners, attending local program events and conducting some media interviews along the way. I hope to see you during my travels!
This issue of Source highlights just some of Extension's work in Minnesota. In addition to meeting our new faculty, you can learn more about Extension's research on farms, water quality efforts, nutrition education, tomato disease resources, Master Gardener programs, and 4-H Science of Agriculture.
From Kittson to Houston, Rock to Cook, Traverse to Chisago, Roseau to Faribault—and all 79 counties in between, we're proud to share the many ways that Extension connects with communities, partners and the University to address issues that matter most.
Over 65% of Extension's 800 researchers, educators and staff live and work in greater Minnesota, located at Extension regional and county offices, University research and outreach centers, and campuses.
