UC ANR Condition Changes
Below are UC ANR's condition changes grouped by our more umbrella public values.
The UC ANR condition changes 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.
- Starting in state fiscal year 2018, we have collected data on UC Cooperative Extension (CE) academic and programmatic staff effort towards these long-term outcomes.The condition changes are coded in our internal Project Board system for CE academics. The Community Educator Specialists respond to an annual survey. See condition change effort/FTE data below. There is the option to self-define condition changes which captures ideas for improving the list and will be used to inform any future revisions.
- Starting for federal fiscal year 2018, we have 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. See annual condition change/impact story compilations below.
