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.

This report comes from a larger body of research by The Lincy Institute on the topic of cooperative extension in Nevada.
