Strategic Planning

Joseph Donaldson provided leadership for a strategic planning initiative in 2005 to describe program priorities for 2006 - 2010. Data collections were varied, and reached over 1,000 Tennesseans. The data collection activities were:

  1. An external environmental scan
  2. A statewide questionnaire of Extension personnel
  3. Nominal groups with State Extension Advisory Council
  4. A statewide questionnaire of 100 of the state's top leaders
  5. Telephone interviews

This planning effort would not have been possible without the cooperation of all UT and TSU Extension employees. The strategic plan composite provides insight into needs that should be addressed through education. (.pdf)
