Kimberlee Kidwell has been dean of the University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences - or ACES - for a little over a year now and has implemented a number of changes to try to improve the state’s land-grant institution. Kidwell talks about what she sees as a major accomplishment in her relatively new role.
Kidwell created a task force to examine the future of University of Illinois Extension. She says she expects its report any day.
Kidwell provided an update on Extension and other U of I College ACES changes to farmers that serve on the Illinois Farm Bureau board of directors.
