In an era of tightening budgets it is essential for Cooperative Extension to determine and articulate the “public value” of its programs and services. Public value is created when a service “advances valued social and economic outcomes” (Stoker, 2006).
Join us for a discussion of how evaluation contributes to creating, defining, documenting and reporting the public value of Extension programs.
