Extension's greatest resource is its people. And that resource starts at its core with an administrative staff with varied skills and strengths. The administrators who lead Nebraska Extension focus on their specific programs, while working collaboratively to provide the greatest service and support to the entire community of employees and those they serve.
The core strength of the group is the solid background they bring to Nebraska's leadership. The administrators represent a combined 130 years of experience in service to the Extension community. This depth of background greatly benefits the organization, its employees and the constituents they serve.
Our administrators serve not as hands-off leaders, but work in close collaboration with people in Nebraska and the wider University. They are both educators and practitioners in their field and are passionate about the work they do and the impact they are having on the world.
