We established an “Extension Academy” in 2022, in which we form cohorts of new educators from across all programmatic areas, give them a competency assessment test, and provide them a series of trainings for a semester on different topics. At the end of the series, we provide them with a graduation certificate of participation

  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Respect (DIER)
