Reaching out to Underserved Audiences - Video presentation

View the recording from Monday, August 12, 2013: https://connect.unl.edu/p36hs7emifg/

Presenters – Jackie Guzman, Jeff Hart, Lisa Kaslon, Angela Abts and Deb Hamernik.

This is a special training for extension/research faculty and staff on reaching out to underserved audiences. The focus is to have faculty share strategies on successful program(s) with the end goal that others would expand programming to reach new audiences. The panel of faculty presenters give some practical insight into five key areas:

  • Program goals and audience
  • How they determined need for the program
  • How they built relationships and partnerships
  • The barriers/surprises
  • How they determined success
