David F. Damore, Robert E. Lang, Fatma Nasoz, William E. Brown, Jr., and Caitlin J. Saladino (The Lincy Institute) are the authors of a new policy brief, "Rethinking Cooperative Extension in Southern Nevada."
Abstract: This brief examines the definition and allocation of land-grant status to higher education institutions in Nevada. Drawing on best practices from similar states, the brief offers a structural and programmatic framework for a UNLV-administered cooperative extension in Southern Nevada. This report comes from a larger body of research by The Lincy Institute on the topic of cooperative extension in Nevada.
An earlier report explores the administration of university cooperative extensions in the United States through case-study analysis.
The Lincy Institute reports on cooperative extension stem from presentations made at a colloquium sponsored by The Lincy Institute and Brookings Mountain West titled, “Making Cooperative Extension Work for Southern Nevada: Fulfilling UNLV’s Urban Land Grant Mission,” held in September at UNLV. Materials from the colloquium can be found online.
