UC Delivers highlights impact of UCCE and AES work

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. 

If you have questions about UC Delivers, please contact Caron-Sale at jennifer.caron-sale@ucop.edu or (510) 987-0214.

UC Delivers provides opportunity to share impact of your work

 

UC CalFresh displays UC Delivers “pay offs” with project highlights at a conference.

UC Delivers, a collection of stories showing how ANR is making a difference for Californians, is a great option to consider when relaying the impact of your work. Once a story is posted to the website it is converted to a one-page PDF, shared with ANR senior management and posted to the federal impacts website for land-grant universities at https://landgrantimpacts.tamu.edu.

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. You can view the 2015 Federal Report Snapshot at http://ucanr.edu/sites/anrstaff/files/253625.pdf for a glimpse 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 consider additional creative ways to share your work using UC Delivers. For example, Andra Nicoli from the UC CalFresh state office brought UC Delivers stories to the California SNAP-Ed Local Implementing Agency Forum to distribute as handouts, and included payoffs from the stories on a display board to show off her unit's work.

“I love UC Delivers because it is a quick way for policymakers and stakeholders to understand the context of an issue and the expertise the UC can leverage as problem-solvers and collaborators,” said Nicoli.  

To submit an article to UC Delivers, go to your ANR Portal page and click on “Add a New Story” under UC Delivers.  Program Planning and Evaluation (PP&E) has streamlined the editing process with the goal of posting stories two to four weeks after you submit them. 

Jennifer Caron-Sale will review content and work 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. Additionally, if you completed an ANR Competitive Grant Final Report in 2016 or 2017, she will reach out to you to initiate the editing process for a public-oriented version of the summary that you include in your report.

If you have questions about UC Delivers, please contact Caron-Sale at jennifer.caron-sale@ucop.edu or (510) 987-0214. She looks forward to receiving and posting stories in 2017 that represent all five Strategic Initiatives.

UC Delivers continues under Program Planning and Evaluation

UC Delivers, a collection of stories showing how ANR is making a difference for Californians, is continuing. The one-pagers are primarily used to educate county supervisors, legislators, funders and reporters about the impact of ANR activities.

As of February 2015, Program Planning and Evaluation (PP&E) resumed coordination of the UC Delivers review process. PP&E has made some changes to the review process and online system to improve coordination between authors, editors and reviewers and to reduce the time it takes to get articles published. Kit Alviz will review content to ensure articles are written in lay language and have strong payoffs; additional content experts will be brought in to review as needed. Communication Services &Information Technology editors will ensure the article conforms to ANR's writing style and fits the UC Delivers template.

Also in the works is a redesign of the UC Delivers website in collaboration with Communication Services & Information Technology.

To submit an article to UC Delivers, go to your ANR Portal page and click on “Add a New Story” under UC Delivers.

If you have questions about UC Delivers, please contact Kit Alviz at kit.alviz@ucop.edu or (510) 987-0027.
