Professor and Extension specialist in family and human development
Sandra Bailey has served as a professor and family and human development specialist for Extension since 2001. In that time, she has provided leadership to programs provided by MSU Extension that have improved the lives of countless Montanans, providing vital outreach and education to women (and men) across the state. A few programs for which Bailey provides leadership help prepare grandparents to raise their grandchildren, provide parent education to prevent childhood obesity, provide family caregivers with the knowledge and skills to take care of themselves while they care for a loved one with a chronic illness, and most recently, collaborate to offer mental health awareness and literacy programs to youth and adults across the state through a partnership with the MSU Center for Mental Health Research. In addition, Bailey regularly serves as a mentor for other women in Extension, encouraging professional development, collaborative projects, grant writing and career advancement. Her programmatic leadership benefits women in Extension and families and children across the state.
