She has many exciting ideas for making this new position useful and efficient, and is very enthusiastic about the work we do in Extension. Dianne will be a valuable resource for all Extension staff.

A New Blog!

Welcome to the new Program Resource Unit blog! I love the easy format and quick feedback of a blog, so this seems like a great way to keep connected with Extension program teams. I hope you'll take a second to add this blog to your feedreader to make it easy peasy to remember to read it.

The Program Resource Unit (PRU)

Program Resource Unit Goal: To improve Extension’s ability to design, deliver, and evaluate programs by providing necessary resources and increasing employee skill levels.

This blog is a way to communicate with staff and open dialog on programming-related topics. Please feel free to comment on any post!
