Several administrative functions also fall within the responsibilities of Evaluation and Staff Development. These include agent recruitment, the hiring process, affirmative action and EEO, performance appraisal and statewide civil rights programming, to name a few.
Coordination of statewide extension staff development efforts is another departmental initiative. Plans are underway to establish frameworks for conducting online training and for a learning management system to track in-service training from the planning stages through individual training records. Extension minority internship programs are also a part of staff development responsibilities.
