In January 2019, the Extension Annual Conference (Jan 24-25) and Community Engagement Conference (Jan 23-24) were held in conjunction for the second year. The conferences brought together faculty, staff, students, and community partners to focus on professional development and networking, while exploring new potential engagement partnerships. The theme was Partnering for a Resilient and Sustainable Future.
