New Purdue Extension director listening and learning

Purdue University

The new head of Purdue Extension wants to find a better way to get information into the hands of Hoosiers.

Jason Henderson was most recently a vice president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. He oversaw outreach programs in economic education, community development, and agricultural/rural programming. Henderson thinks that experience will transfer to Extension and benefit Hoosiers.

His first day on the job was May 28th.

Henderson does have knowledge of Indiana from his time as a graduate student at Purdue. However, he admits he still has a lot to learn about the administrative side of the university and Extension.
