The 21st Century Extension Professional

Presented by Dr. Chuck Hibberd, Dean and Director of UNL Extension.

The Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) identified key characteristics of 21st Century Extension professionals by studying Extension job postings, surveying Extension Directors/Administrators and conducting focus groups with outstanding Extension professionals. Our objective is to improve our ability to effectively search, screen and develop Extension professionals. Application of the results should enhance the quality and potential of our new hires and position them for success in modern Extension work. Participants in this session will contribute to our understanding of these important elements.

This webinar is sponsored and hosted by the National Association of Extension Program and Staff Development Professionals (NAEPSDP). For more information on NAEPSDP, please visit our website at
