To show how ANR is making a difference for Californians, ANR collects impact stories from UC Cooperative Extension and Agricultural Experiment Station work in UC Delivers. Please help us keep the collection updated by contributing your success stories that include documented or potential impacts.
Once a story is posted to the website, it is converted to a one-page PDF that is shared with ANR senior leaders and posted to the federal impacts website for land grant universities at https://landgrantimpacts.tamu.edu. At the end of January, the national land-grant impact writing team will be gathering stories from this database to share with members of Congress.
Stories or portions of stories may also be included in the annual federal report that is submitted to our funding partner, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture. The 2016 Federal Report Snapshot can be viewed at http://ucanr.edu/sites/anrstaff/Divisionwide_Planning to see a sample of research and extension that was included in the report. One-pagers on UC Delivers may also be used to educate county supervisors, legislators, funders and reporters about the impact of ANR activities.
You may find other ways to share your work using UC Delivers.
To submit an article to UC Delivers, go to your ANR Portal page and click on “Add a New Story” under UC Delivers. or if you are AES faculty without access to the portal, you can contact Jennifer Caron-Sale directly for assistance posting a story. Program Planning and Evaluation's editing process is designed to post stories within four weeks after submission.
Caron-Sale, Program Planning and Evaluation policy analyst, reviews content and works with authors to ensure articles are written in lay language, have strong payoffs and conform to ANR's writing style and the UC Delivers template. For academics who have completed an ANR Competitive Grant Final Report in 2017, she will reach out to initiate the editing process for a summary written for the general public.
