SDSU restructures extension; new field specialists named

BROOKINGS, SD - South Dakota State University (SDSU) Extension has hired 44 Field Specialists who will work in eight Regional Extension Centers across South Dakota. During a news conference Thursday, Oct. 20, in Brookings, Barry Dunn, Dean of the SDSU College of Agriculture and Director of SDSU Extension, announced the names of the new hires, and said a new era in SDSU Extension had begun. The Regional Extension Centers open next week.

"This Friday marks the end of one era in SDSU Extension. Next week, we welcome a new day in SDSU Extension based on the talents of new Field Specialists and the existing State Specialists, efficiencies found in Regional Centers, and information delivery through the iGrow learning platform," Dunn said. "As a result, SDSU Extension is stronger than ever. We remain deeply committed to serving South Dakotans and, in this new era, we will continue to provide them with the research and information they need to be competitive in today's economy."

The new era Dunn refers to came about in order to comply with state budget cuts set by the Legislature and Governor Daugaard earlier this spring.

"In managing under the new budget environment, SDSU Extension called on staff and stakeholders to help define what elements must be carried forward, and what elements can be retired," Dunn said. "As a result, next week we embark on the largest reorganization of SDSU Extension since its creation in 1914."

Dunn also unveiled a new logo for SDSU Extension.

"We wanted a new look to reflect our new way of doing business," Dunn said.
