Critical Conversation - The role of evaluation in determining the public value of Extension

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.

Nancy Franz, Associate Dean Extension & Outreach
Iowa State University
