Expanded University Centers

Services expand at two centers supporting agricultural regions

The East Orchard Mesa area outside Grand Junction is in one of two state regions that will benefit from improved and expanded Colorado State University centers now under construction. Groundbreaking occurred last fall on the Western Colorado Campus at Orchard Mesa and the Arkansas Valley Campus at Rocky Ford. Both regional centers will broaden and co-locate CSU Extension, agricultural research, veterinary diagnostics, and other services to benefit area residents. Local policy-makers and state legislators are among the partners providing critical support for improved facilities.
