People, who think numbers speak louder than words, will find out more about CAHNR’s people, places and programs through a newly updated fact sheet. For example, for fall semester 2016, the College had 1920 BA/BS and 61 AAS students enrolled in 17 undergraduate majors.
In addition, the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources 2017 Fact Sheet lists many other relevant numbers, such as those pertaining to faculty members, scholarship dollars, Extension volunteers, student clubs, current alumni and acres of land. Contact information for departments, Extension centers, retail outlets and service centers is included, as well.
Rather than being a real-time picture, the fact sheet is an annual snapshot that summarizes what CAHNR looks like at one point in time, according to Sara Putnam, the director of CAHNR’s Office of Communications. Her office is responsible for updating and designing the fact sheet each year. Academic department representatives, facilities managers and other CAHNR personnel provide numbers and words for the document.
Several years ago, the College decided to offer the fact sheet online. However, for those who prefer a sheet of paper and/or a condensed version, a printable pdf format is available. In addition, there is an alternate route for accessing the two documents. The online report, called “College Fact Sheet” is linked from the left side of the CAHNR homepage. The summary version is accessible from the upper right of the main 2017 fact sheet page by selecting “2017 Print Summary.”
