Katherine Hartmann

  • Adjunct Assistant Professor
My work focuses on equity and access in formal and informal agricultural education settings, and the systemic barriers faced by marginalized communities to education. Specifically, my research has focused on inclusive and decolonizing pedagogies, community development through culturally responsive programming, and assisting educators and institutions build collaborations with diverse communities. I am particularly interested in Cooperative Extension’s collaborations with Indigenous communities, the sociohistorical context of the Land Grant System, and decolonizing methodologies and practices.
