and Tessa Conroy
, members of the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics (AAE), have partnered with the University of Wisconsin-Extension's Center for Community and Economic Development
(CCED), in the awarding of a U.S. Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administrations University Center. The new EDA University Center, a total of $750,000 over five years, will work to leverage the educational outreach mission of the CCED and the applied research mission of AAE. The joint synergies between AAE and CCED will enable current efforts to be magnified and reinforced. Steve and Tessa are excited about working with their colleagues in CCED to improve the economic well-being of Wisconsin communities and residents.
