Extension CRED Impact Indicators – Review, Refresh, Revise


Extension CRED Impact Indicators – Review, Refresh, Revise

The North Central Region is leading an effort to review, refresh and potentially revise the set of impact indicators that report on Extension CRED work. Other regions are using some or all of these indicators, along with other indicators. In this webinar, we will describe the plan for reviewing the indicators, along with the results of a national survey to assess how indicators are currently used. The goal of the project is to develop indicators which capture and report on meaningful activity/impact from all land grant institutions, including 1862s, 1890s, and 1994s. We would like to engage all regions and work toward common indicators which are useful and used by all land grants across all four regions. The current set of common indicators doesn’t specifically capture DEIA work, and we would like to figure out how to do that.
