Sustainable Communities Extension Specialist, Assistant Professor
Roslynn's research interests include fostering pro-environmental behavior at the community level, with a specific focus on recycling, buy-local initiatives and land conservation.
She earned her M.S. in rural Extension studies at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada and her Ph.D. in agricultural education and communication (Major: Extension education, Minor: environmental education) at the University of Florida.
She is trained in developing, administering and reporting needs assessment results, survey design, program development and evaluation, grant writing and non-formal teaching techniques.
Roslynn put her academic training to use in the field by working as an agronomist assistant with farmers in Ontario, an intern with a livestock Extension Agent in Florida, a grants specialist and environmental educator with the University of Georgia's Cooperative Extension Service and a naturalist instructor in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and in Yellowstone National Park. She is extremely excited to meet all of the great people involved with USU Extension and to help foster pro-environmental behavior change!
