North Central Region (NCR) Extension Regional Award, Team Excellence in Extension

March, 2022

Submitted a successful proposal to the North Central Regional Center for Rural Development (NCRCRD), to fund “The Gathering,” a meeting of Extension professionals who work in the area of aging from all three Extension systems in the North Central Region. There are 34 land-grant colleges and universities in the twelve North Central Region states. Twelve are designated “1862” land-grants because they were inaugurated with the Morrill Act of 1862, two are historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), or “1890” land-grants established by the 1890 Morrill Act, and the remaining 20 are tribal colleges and universities (TCUs), also known as “1994” land-grants because of the Equity in Educational Land-Grant Status Act of 1994.
