Extension and AgBioResearch Council

2013 MSU Extension and MSU AgBioResearch Council members

Michigan State University Extension and MSU AgBioResearch link the issues of concern in local communities with the research and teaching at the state’s land grant university.

A network for organized citizen input at the local and state levels enhances that linkage. County Extension councils identify and prioritize issues, seek collaborations and resources, and communicate to others the importance of Extension’s educational programming. Advisory councils help establish research priorities at the state’s 14 AgBioResearch centers located throughout the state.

The MSU Extension and AgBioResearch Council serves as a liaison between county councils, field station advisory groups and state agencies and organizations. Members are able to communicate to others (policymakers, organizations and agencies, university administrators etc.) the importance of the educational programming and the applied research from Michigan’s land grant university.

The MSU Extension and AgBioResearch Council was founded in 1998 to help Michigan State University Extension and the AgBioResearch link the issues of concern in local communities with the research and teaching at the state’s land grant university.
