Keith Tidball named USDA visiting scholar!

Congratulations to Keith Tidball for being named as a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) 2014 visiting scholar!

Tidball is a senior extension associate in the Department of Natural Resources, as well as a state program leader of Cornell Cooperative Extension’s New York Extension Disaster Education Network. His nomination as a visiting scholar will give him the opportunity to work with various federal agencies and international programs to help spread information about disaster education and recovery.

“It’s a great honor to be selected for this opportunity, and I am looking forward to the challenge of better integrating the climate change discourse within USDA/NIFA and other federal agencies, and the preparedness and disaster response discourses,” Tidball said.
