Program Development Process

Our Mission:
ISU Extension and Outreach builds partnerships and provides research‐based learning opportunities to improve quality of life in Iowa.
• Our Purpose: ISU Extension and Outreach has as its core purpose to provide research‐based
educational programs.
• Our Partnership: ISU Extension and Outreach accomplishes its goals through the development
of diverse and meaningful partnerships.
• Our Impact: Through our purpose, and in partnership, ISU Extension and Outreach provides relevant, needs‐driven resources and as a result, creates significant impact in the state of Iowa. While it’s important to be flexible, we also need processes in place that council members, county staff and program specialists on and off campus understand and follow, so everyone knows the parameters in which we operate. In an organization as complex as ours, systems must be transparent and understood, so that we all can connect and influence the processes. (Advance: 2011 Leadership Summit ‐ Executive Summary)
