Extension: 100 Years of Service
In 2014, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act. It created the Cooperative Extension Service, a state-by-state network of educators to extend university-based research and knowledge to the people. Although times and technologies have changed, NDSU Extension still is committed to extending knowledge and changing lives now and in the future.

Historian and Artist Steve Stark presented an illustrated look at the historic timeline of Extension and the land-grant university in the NDSU Memorial Union Century Theater. Steve is a former Extension colleague from Fargo who is being engaged all over the nation this year to share his creative message about Extension. His unique Illustrated presentation brought history, art and presentation to life as in historical costume he told Extension's stories while drawing with skill and speed on a 25-foot roll of paper.
