Community and Economic Development at Iowa State University: Sharing Our Work, Its Extension Scholarship and Its Relationship to the College of Design

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Community and Economic Development (CED) embraces Iowa State’s land-grant mission of teaching (learning), research (discovery) and outreach (engagement). Community development has been an integral part of the university’s extension mission since the 1910s. CED envisions resilient and thriving communities that champion the well-being of all people.

Erin Olson-Douglas, CED program director and associate dean for extension and outreach in the College of Design, will provide an overview of CED structure and programming.

College of Design faculty with Community and Economic Development extension appointments — Biswa Das, associate professor of community and regional planning; Jennifer Drinkwater, associate professor of art and visual culture; and Christopher Seeger, professor of landscape architecture — will discuss their outreach and engagement work with CED. They will also share potential opportunities for the CED extension and outreach unit and the College of Design to collaborate.

Part of the IDRO Friday Research Seminar brown-bag lunch series sponsored by the Institute for Design Research and Outreach in the College of Design.
