Research studies and related presentations were made in collaboration with two other OSU departments, one other OSU college and five other universities (Louisiana State University, University of Florida, University of Louisville, University of Southern Mississippi, and West Texas A&M University), as well as the NRCCTE and USAID.

The manuscript “An Assessment of the Sasakawa Africa Fund for Extension Education’s (SAFE) Training Program in Mali: Graduates’ Perceptions of the Program’s Impact on Their Professional Performance” received the 2013 Article of the Year Award from the Journal of International Agricultural and Extension Education (JIAEE).  The manuscript’s authors were Dr. Assa Kanté, Dr. M.
