Have you ever heard an acronym that you were unfamiliar with? Since 1995, Rich Wrage, Regional Extension Education Director, has been compiling a list of acronyms associated with our work in ISU Extension and Outreach. During the last 22 years, Rich’s list has evolved into more of a reference dictionary and will serve as a wonderful resource for our new and seasoned staff, faculty and volunteers. We have added Rich’s Extension and Outreach Acronym Dictionary to the Professional Development website under the “Resources for New Staff” and “Extension and Outreach Council Member” categories.
