A Code of Ethics for Tennessee Extension Workers

Professional and personal ethics have captured news headlines recently. Ethics breakdowns among prominent individuals in government and industry has led to a renewed emphasis on organizational values and ethical practices. A Code of Ethics for Tennessee Extension Workers was developed many years ago but is still pertinent to our work today.

Forms for HR128 Training Credit

The human resources policy, HR 128, provides for each UT employee to receive a minimum of 32 hours of training annually. Links to further information and credit forms are provided below. Extension forms should be processed through normal administrative channels and sent to Extension Evaluation & Staff Development rather than directly to Employee & Organizational Development. Please contact Mr. Doug Bohner if you have questions.

  • Employee and Organizational Development Web Site
  • External Training Credit
  • Training Registration Form (For face-to-face training, FACILITATOR USE ONLY)
  • Online Training Credit Spreadsheet (For Synchronous Online Training, FACILITATOR USE ONLY) We are now able to use a spreadsheet to capture course information and the class roster for Synchronous Online Training (an example would be training delivered via Zoom). Two tabs of the spreadsheet should be completed and emailed to Mr. Doug Bohner. One tab has course information and the other a training roster including UT Personnel Number and Name. An agenda should also be attached to the email -or- a hard copy should be provided.
