Southern Oregon Research & Extension Center was formed in 1994 when the Southern Oregon Experiment Station was combined with the Jackson County Extension Service.
FUNDING: An important partner, Jackson County provides the land, buildings, building maintenance, office supplies and clerical support for the county extension agents, scientists and research assistants located at the facility. The federal government, through the U.S. Department of Agriculture, supports state and local projects with grants and pays a portion of the statewide program and faculty costs. Other grants and research contracts also support the varied extension and research programs.
FACULTY & STAFF Our faculty and staff help thousands of Jackson County residents find answers and solve problems every year, in addition to instructing on-going programs and a selection of season-appropriate classes. Ten faculty and two support staff members work in the Extension Unit. Two scientists, working in entomology, plant pathology and horticulture, are located in the Research Unit.
