Extension Issue Teams

Nebraska Extension aims to address issues that are critical to making our world and our state a better place. Many of these issues are complex, multidisciplinary, and challenging; yet they provide great opportunities to help shape a future that is promising for Nebraska and our nation. Nebraska Extension Issue Teams ensure that client needs are assessed, priorities are identified, educational outcomes are defined, programs are delivered, and impacts are reported. To help ensure that Nebraska 4-H is addressing these issues as well, Nebraska 4-H faculty and staff across the state are involved in a number of Issue Teams that help shape the program priorities. For more information about Issue Teams or Nebraska 4-H's involvement, please contact nebraska4h@unl.edu.
