Field days are special events that introduce new and exciting developments in agriculture.
Participants in the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture (UADA) Internal
Leadership Education And Development (iLEAD) traveled to northeast Arkansas to visit
the Northeast Rice Research and Extension Center (NERREC) in Greenfield and the Northeast
Research and Extension Center (NEREC) in Keiser.
“iLEAD is a one-year intensive leadership development program for UADA employees.
The program provides participants with the unique opportunity to enhance their personal
leadership skills and explore first-hand UADA’s research and education endeavors across
the state,” said Dr. Julie Robinson, associate professor and iLEAD director.
An overview of the iLEAD field day experience is outlined below:
Day One: Northeast Rice Research and Extension Center (NERREC)
Day Two: Northeast Research and Extension Center (NEREC)
One participant shared in the evaluation that they valued the opportunity to network
with new colleagues. The individual stated, “Connecting the research and extension
aspects shows us how our contributions help them. In addition, speaking with the county
extension agents showed me their struggle between county governments and UADA.”
The next iLEAD session will be virtual on Nov. 19, 2021. To learn more about the iLEAD
program contact Julie Robinson, email@example.com or Lisa Davis, firstname.lastname@example.org.
