Time for a Catalyst
“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples, then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.”
– George Bernard Shaw (British playwright, 1856-1950)
ISU Extension and Outreach is a catalyst — and this really is at the heart of what we should be doing. Because of our networks and unique connections, we often are aware of different opportunities. We also can connect people in ways that perhaps they never thought of being connected. Through this sharing, we may create unique relationships or new funding opportunities that possibly didn’t exist before. This ability to catalyze, to gain energy from people coming together in some unique ways, results in great benefits for the state of Iowa. With our networks and connections, we bring the right people together to move Iowa forward. We’re not just sharing apples; we’re sharing ideas. See you there.
