ISU Extension staff and faculty have a positive attitude toward global extension:
Reasons stated by ISU Extension staff and faculty
regarding why global extension is important:
“I see many possibilities. We live in a global economy now-two
of my three children work in international business (one has traveled
to several countries) & my brother travels the world for his company.”
“We exist in a global environment that must be understood and embraced.”
“Today we live in a global economy and the better we
understand it the better we will be able to serve and improve
the quality of life of our local citizens. Our citizens and
communities are in a rapid time of change. The more we can learn
and help others to learn how to adapt to change in order to meet
their needs, again, the better we will be able to serve
the people in our own communities.”
As is, too many un-served or underserved audiences already
exist in this country.”
