Extension wants to hear programming ideas

January 4, 2019

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension is looking to the future and wants to know what people think.

Extension staff will host a discussion Jan. 11 from 7 to 8:30 a.m., breakfast included, at West Central Research and Extension Center, 422 W. State Farm Road.

Chuck Hibberd, dean of UNL Extension, said the university “is committed to providing high-quality, high-impact extension programming designed to meet the needs of Nebraskans.”

Extension staff members are developing strategic priorities to guide their work through 2025 and want to know what people value most, what they believe will be important in the next few years, and what improvements they would like to see in Extension programs.

People planning to attend the discussion should register at go.unl.edu/extension2025. Sessions will also be held at other locations across the state, including:

» Valentine: Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Niobrara Lodge

» McCook: Jan. 11 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the 4-H meeting room, Red Willow County Fairgrounds.

UNL Extension conducts research and educational programs in crop and livestock production, water management, horticulture, forestry and windbreak management, nutrition education, youth 4-H and school enrichment programs, farm safety and related topics.
