Dean Kress' State of the College Address

During her State of the College address earlier this month, Dean Kress addressed opportunities and challenges facing the college. She recognized the college’s tremendous growth and evolution over the past 150 years; celebrated the impact of work in CFAES; and outlined the college’s new strategic plan. The plan includes continuing to address four grand challenges that require interdisciplinary work – sustainability, one health, the rural-urban interface, and preparing the future workforce. Visit to read the press release. OSU Extension is aligned with and fully engaged in efforts around each of these grand challenges. Please take time to watch the recording and to think about how we in OSU Extension can participate in the important work of the college and bring the resources of the university out to all of our statewide campuses.
