Extension's academic promotion process was established in 2006 to support and recognize educators for their achievement in six categories: scholarship, education and teaching, program leadership, engagement, program management, and service.
Promotion is a professional indicator of personal and organizational success. Extension'spromotion process reinforces the importance of Extension's education model and our responsibility to develop and deliver effective research-based educational programming.
Please join me in congratulating the 13 Extension staff who recently completed the process to achieve the following:

I want to thank all of those involved in this year's academic review process--the applicants, supervisors, review committee members, peer reviewers, mentors, program team members and administrative staff.
