Goals for area-wide meetings

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach has divided the state into areas for meeting purposes only. The goals for these meetings are to:

  • Improve internal communication throughout ISU Extension and Outreach.
  • Enhance interdisciplinary and multi-county programming.
  • Strengthen relationships with colleagues.
  • More closely align vision and mission throughout our organization. 

See the Plans for Area-Wide, All-Staff Quarterly Meetings (pdf, May 2019) to review the overall objectives, actions and expectations.
