Message from the Associate Dean and Extension Director
In our efforts to deal with the budget management system within the University of Arizona (UA), the Cooperative Extension System (CES) is moving forward and we are making managerial adjustments to maintain fiscal solvency, support our programs, and continue to deliver on our mission.
We are always conscious of our spending. However, with the rising costs and fees that we continue to absorb, we must be extra vigilant with our management to maintain the operational capacity of the CES and this effort pertains to everyone across the organization. Under these conditions, our strategic priorities for the CES are to support the people and programs with the core funding necessary to support our basic Extension operations.
I greatly appreciate everyone’s diligent efforts to maintain fiscal responsibility at all levels. Knowing the people across the CES, I am confident that we will successfully deal with our challenges and maintain the integrity of the organization. We do this by working together, doing our jobs, demonstrating professionalism, and representing the CES and the UA in a positive manner in all of the communities across the state where we work.
