DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - The University of New Hampshire is participating in the new National Land-Grant Impacts website, a resource that highlights agricultural teaching and projects.
The website provides access to accounts that document agricultural experiment station research and programming implemented by UNH and other land-grant universities.
Information is available on food security; nutrition and health; youth, family, and communities; environmental stewardship; agricultural systems; and energy and bioproducts.
The website also informs users about the history of the land-grant university system. UNH is committed to a three-fold mission of teaching, research and extension.
“The opportunity to provide a coordinated national perspective to the importance of land-grant colleges and institutions and the tangible impacts to U.S. citizens is an important step in the right direction,” said Ken La Valley, dean and director of UNH Cooperative Extension. “A fundamental distinction UNH shares with its land-grant colleagues is the charge to be an engaged partner with communities and agricultural and natural resource stakeholders. In short, we take pride in making a difference in people’s lives.”
UNH is one of the 238 public research universities, land-grant institutions, state university systems, and affiliated organizations represented by The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities.
