National Urban Extension Conference (Seattle, 5/20-5/23/2019)
Posted: 3/11/2019 (Conference)
Subject: The National Urban Extension Conference May 20-23 in Seattle, WA is your gateway to new partnerships & connections. 150 presenters from 30 states.
Our urban colleagues at Washington State University’s Metropolitan Center for Applied Research and Extension are hosting the 2019 National Urban Extension Conference in Seattle, May 20-23. This is an unique opportunity as it is the first Urban Extension Conference hosted in the West since 1996 and won’t be back for another 10 years. If you are not familiar with the land-grant university Extension program (very different from UW Extension), this is a great way to learn about it, meet potential research partners from across the nation, and for graduate students to explore potential career options.
Early bird Registration is OPEN for the National Urban Extension Conference.
The Conference is also a welcoming environment for university-based researchers and municipal organizations, non-profits and private businesses interested in establishing and strengthening partnerships with land grant university professionals working in urban areas.
Focus areas include: Strengthening Communities, Protecting the Environment, Improving Health, Enriching Youth, and Feeding our Future.
Location: Washington State University’s Metropolitan Center for Applied Research and Extension
