Congratulations to Ayanava Majumdar (Cohort 18), who started his role as Assistant Director for Grant and Program Development Alabama Extension on January 1, 2024.
Majumdar is no stranger to Alabama Extension. Since 2008, he has served as an Alabama Extension professor and entomologist. His most recognizable programs include Beginning Farmer and its offshoot, the Operation Grow program. Through his educational programs, Majumdar has extensive experience with grant writing, planning and execution.
Majumdar said he is excited about his new role, which will integrate grant and funding development with program planning. This will further support a wide range of Extension projects from the ground up.
“Collaboration within Extension teams across multiple colleges and campuses — along with meaningful partnerships with community members — is key to our success,” Majumdar said. “This is a holistic, 21st-century approach to Extension that ties directly to the Alabama Extension Strategic Plan.”
