As part of the centennial celebration of the Smith-Lever Act, West Virginia University will host a research symposium to discuss the past, present and future of the Cooperative Extension Service through submitted scholarly papers.
The Smith-Lever Symposium and WVU Extension Service Exhibition will take place Sept. 24-25, and is part of a series of events happening on WVU’s Morgantown campus. WVU President E. Gordon Gee and former WVU President C. Peter Magrath will serve as keynote speakers. Registration for the conference will be available soon.
The deadline for proposals is June 10, but early submission is encouraged. The call for papers addresses either historical or contemporary issues of the Cooperative Extension Service and the Smith-Lever Act.
Visit WVU Extension Service’s newly created Smith-Lever website smithlever.wvu.edu to learn more about the Smith-Lever Act and the celebrations happening throughout the year, both on and off WVU’s campus.
