Outstanding Extension and Engagement Awards

The Outstanding Extension Awards and Outstanding Engagement Awards are to encourage and recognize members of the faculty and EHRA staff who are nominated and selected by their respective colleagues, schools or units on campus for their outstanding contributions to extension or engagement. The award recipients will become nominees for induction into the Academy of Outstanding Faculty in Extension and Engagement and also be considered to receive an Alumni Award which includes a monetary stipend.

Awardees were recognized at the University Outreach and Engagement Awards Ceremony on April 16, 2021.
