Deanna Osmond carries on the Extension traditions of improving lives and using science to help people make informed decisions.
Dr. Deanna Osmond, professor of soil science and department Extension leader, observes, “Oftentimes, in the environmental world I work in, different factions have different opinions; so it’s really nice to be able provide credible information to help them make informed decisions.”
"Research also is a big part of Osmond’s environmental work and, to her, research and extension are one and the same. “I see the research and extension missions being indistinguishable,” she said.
“If I don’t have credible research to extend, then I don’t have an Extension program."
