Making Education Accessible for All

We recognize there can often be significant barriers – including high tuition costs and the inability to relocate – to gaining more knowledge and skills through education. That’s why we are proud to offer a variety of extension education resources to help accommodate learners from all walks of life.


Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary

The Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary (a.k.a. PASSeL) is comprised of free online videos and lessons developed by subject matter experts. The purpose of PASSeL is to make unbiased, cutting-edge research information widely accessible to audiences around the globe.
