Message from the Associate Dean and Extension Director
My vision for the Cooperative Extension System (CES) in Arizona is to focus on the fundamentals consistent with the land grant mission of bringing the university to the people of the State of Arizona and bringing science to bear on practical problems.
The formal or complete Arizona CES mission is stated very directly as:
To engage with people through applied research and education to improve lives, families, communities, environment, and economies in Arizona and beyond.
Our programs in all areas of the CES are doing well when we are working to accomplish this mission and document that fact.
This translates to four fundamental points for us all to follow, starting with myself every day that include:
1) Do your job.
2) Be a professional
3) Be a good teammate with your colleagues.
4) Do the right thing.
a. Check with the following three questions: 1) Is it legal? 2) Is it ethical? and 3) Is it morally correct?
Sounds simple enough and it is certainly within our capacity.
