Each year, Michigan State University Extension and MSU AgBioResearch leaders have the opportunity to submit a report to the Michigan Legislature that details our efforts. The state's investment in our land-grant mission that includes outreach, research and teaching is essential. Given the tremendous effect of the novel coronavirus pandemic on our operations, this year's report is completely online.
Here we report the total funds expended by MSU Extension and MSU AgBioResearch, share data on the number of individuals utilizing our services, the number of clients, new jobs and client revenue generated through the MSU Product Center, and review a collection of our major programs.
