Along with other Extension programs throughout the country, Alabama Extension is working to spark a dialogue about the traits and skills that 21st century Extension educators must acquire to become effective change agents in this emerging global knowledge economy.
As part of this effort, we have just published “A 21st Century Extension Creed,” which essentially functions as an updating of Epsilon Sigma Phi founder W.A. Lloyd’s beloved Extension Creed of 1922.
The 21st Century Extension Creed, while affirming our links to the past, also asserts our strong commitment to the emerging values of the current century: mutual respect, openness, creativity and innovation.
