It is important to acknowledge the hard work and valuable contributions provided by the Extension Transition Working Group led by Jeremy Elliott-Engel.
This group included Ed Martin, Ethan Orr, Channah Rock, Dominic Rodriguez, and Evelyn Whitmer. They all did an excellent job assisting in the development of the Cooperative Extension Group 7 plan that is a part of the university’s overall transition plan.
The Group 7 plan from the university level, provides a framework within which we are now directing and implementing the specific lines of management and operation for the Cooperative Extension System.
We greatly appreciate the input from this Extension Transition Working Group in developing the university level foundation for transition that is appropriate for Cooperative Extension.
Many thanks to the Extension Transition Working Group for their excellent work on the Group 7 section of the university plan!
Also, thanks to you all for your ongoing support and patience in this process.
