Engaging in CSU’s research and educational programs at the Colorado State Fair

The scope of this project is to design a program of education opportunities during the Colorado State Fair that engage participants and build awareness of CSU and the resources available to all as part of our land-grant mission. This project is designed to amplify the diverse efforts of CSU Extension, Colorado 4-H and the College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS) already in place at the Fair. The student will have opportunities to learn about the units and offerings of the Office of Engagement and Extension and work with partners across campus.
Through this project, the student will learn and practice tools to engage stakeholders and communities. Key internship outcomes include:
• Develop a project plan to ensure successful delivery on the programs, including stakeholder analysis.
• Identify opportunities and finalize schedule from across CSU research and educational programs that would engage stakeholders.
• Create a communications plan to promote CSU’s overall participation in the State Fair.
• Develop a research methodology to measure effectiveness of our engagement.
