Introduction to Extension's Public Value

Presented by Dr. Nancy Franz, Director, Extension to Families of Iowa State University Extension and Outreach

Extension must more fully and adeptly embrace the public value movement to be sustainable as a publicly funded organization. The public value concepts and steps will be outlined from pilot work with several Extension systems and national work groups to inform others interested in capturing and sharing the public value of Extension work. Overall, the Extension public value banner needs to be held high as we address the “perception” of our work by presenting this as a "movement" in our professional, program, and organizational development and not simply a "response" to our economic environment.

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
