2018 Extension Forum invites Lynn Hempel to present on social sustainability

Over 190 CSU Extension employees from all over Colorado joined their on-campus colleagues October 22-25 for the 2018 Extension Forum held at the Lory Student Center. The annual event provides professional development, recognition and networking activities, as well as opportunities to work together and reach common goals.

CSU’s Office of Engagement asked Dr. Lynn Hempel to present “Social Sustainability: A Process-Based Model” during the administrative update session of the forum. “I loved hearing your address at CSU Extension Forum this year. Thank you for your inspiring words,” was one of many positive comments heard from attendees.

Dr. Lou Swanson, Vice President for Engagement and Director of Extension, initially heard Hempel’s presentation when his office, the Department of Sociology, and several Chinese organizations co-sponsored an international conference and meetings held in Shanghai and Beijing in June 2018.
