Traveling the state, Extension dean describes programming, priorities


2016 has found Extension Dean Bev Durgan journeying throughout Minnesota, meeting with a wide range of stakeholders as well as staff in county and regional offices.

In this interview with Julie Buntjer of the Worthington Daily Globe, Dean Durgan discusses how Extension is actively engaged throughout Minnesota on matters of both regional and statewide importance. Here's an excerpt:

“It’s been a great year traveling throughout the state and meeting people,” Durgan said. “One thing I’ve learned is that Extension is fortunate. We have some great people working in Extension -- they’re very dedicated to this state -- and the people of Minnesota have pretty high expectations for us."

“They care about what Extension is doing and want us to continue and to expand our work,” she added.
