Tourism Extension is advancing destination leadership knowledge through research on key tourism issues and partnerships. These destination resources are designed to help destination leaders maximize the positive impacts of tourism while reducing negative impacts. Dr. Knollenberg research focuses on destination leadership, specifically the planning, policies, and partnerships that facilitate sustainable tourism development. Her work explores these relationships in a variety of contexts including rural tourism, agritourism, food tourism and volunteer tourism. She conceptualizes tourism as a sustainable development strategy for communities and seeks to engage multiple stakeholder groups in her research in order to fully understand the impacts of tourism. This approach allows her to examine power dynamics within the sustainable tourism development process and their interaction with leadership, planning, policy, and partnerships.
