Nellis: Partner with industry to keep Parma extension center open?

New University of Idaho President Duane Nellis - who is in his first week on the job, and is touring the state - said at a gathering at the Parma Research and Extension Center yesterday that perhaps industry can partner with the state to keep the center open in the face of budget cuts. “As the governor mentioned earlier, maybe there are ways to partner with industry,” Nellis told a crowd of concerned farmers, legislators, university and ag officials at the center. “We need to look at being more entrepreneurial and making those connections in different ways. This announcement has truly brought out industry and they seem to have a vested interest in what is happening here.” Here’s an audio clip of Nellis’ comments.

The U of I’s research and extension centers operate on 4,000 acres statewide, including locations in Aberdeen, Caldwell, Dubois, Salmon, Hagerman, Kimberly, Moscow, Parma, Sandpoint, Tetonia, and Twin Falls.
