The Department supports formal academic outreach and extension programs as a result of its affiliation with Cooperative Extension and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. We offer extension programming in the areas of biometeorology, water and nutrient management, aquaculture, and crop management.
Brown, and Walworth (soil and water science) and Dr Crimmons (Climatologist) carry a majority appointment in Extension and are classified as Extension Specialists.
Fitzsimmons (aquaculture), and Silvertooth
(soil and water science) retain faculty titles.
- All Extension
faculty are expected to conduct applied research in support of their
Extension programs and thus carry partial research appointments.
All SWES faculty have as a requirement of employment the responsibility to participate in public service activities. Public service activities performed by SWES faculty include:
- serving on local, state, and regional advisory boards
- responding to inquiries from the print and electronic media
- presenting lectures and/or training sessions at workshops and conferences
