Collaboration across MSU Extension
One of the advantages of specialization is a deep and broad knowledge of subject matters related a particular discipline, such as field crops. Having four MSU Extension Institutes gives us the ability to bring together deep and broad knowledge to address issues that are multifaceted and complex. For example, MSU Extension Educators and Program Instructors have worked together on physical and financial health issues, agricultural and stress issues, economic and community development and conservation issues, and issues that face young and old.
Your local office is housed with experts in particular fields. Individuals may serve in the Agricultural and Agribusiness Institute, the Children and Youth Institute, the Health and Nutrition Institute or our community and natural resource sustainability institute—the Greening Michigan Institute. However, even if you do not have a local expert for the Extension issue that you need addressed, we draw from a statewide pool of experts to make sure that you have the information that you need. In addition, the MSU Extension website www.msue.msu.edu is maintained and updated on a regular basis. We are always looking for ways to collaborate with each other to apply knowledge to the critical issues you face.
