nEXT Generation project: The Future of Cooperative Extension

Beginning in February 2016, the nEXT Generation project maps the future of Cooperative Extension, a division of University of Wisconsin-Extension and an essential educational resource for the people of Wisconsin. The goals of the project are to:

  • Shape the future of the Cooperative Extension division, while staying true to Cooperative Extension’s Purpose, Values and Vision.
  • Build a new organization and infrastructure for Cooperative Extension that is relevant, flexible and digital.
  • Address the $3.6 million structural budget deficit that compromises the current structure of educational delivery across Cooperative Extension.
