Condition changes

About Us > Strategic Plan > Public Value Statements > Condition Changes

Below are UC ANR's condition changes grouped by our more umbrella public values. These were developed in 2017 through a participatory process that engaged academics and program staff across the ANR network. 

These condition changes and public values statements are used in many important ways, including program planning, evaluation, and for communication and advocacy. The condition changes are coded in our internal Project Board system for CE academics to indicate their effort towards these long-term outcomes and to tag to their outcome narratives. In addition, the Community Educator Specialists respond to an annual survey to indicate their effort towards these condition changes.

Starting for federal fiscal year 2018, we gathered qualitative outcomes data in Project Board and selected measured outcomes from individual CE academics that provide evidence of how UC ANR contributes to these condition changes.
