Lecture addresses school, Extension merger

Academic leaders will discuss the merger of the former University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences and the UAF Cooperative Extension Service Thursday, April 24, from 3:40 to 5:10 p.m. in O’Neill 201.

The talk will be presented to graduate students in the Natural Resources Management 692 seminar, but guests are welcome to observe.

Steve Sparrow, interim dean of the school and interim director of the Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, and Fred Schlutt, director of CES and vice provost for outreach, will explain how the merger will strengthen the research, teaching and outreach capabilities of the new unit, dubbed the School of Natural Resources and Extension by the University of Alaska Board of Regents in February.
