Signature Programs
Program teams are asked to identify signature programs. A signature program is a comprehensive, team-based program that addresses a priority issue throughout the state and evaluates the program's impact on the learning, application, or effect with clientele. Criteria for signature programs include:

  • Involves collaborative effort between specialists and agents where agents have active delivery role (beyond hosting event)
  • Addresses priority issues
  • Offered in multiple locations in the state or targeted areas as appropriate (i.e., canola production areas)
  • Includes evaluation plan/tool at level 2-3-4 and provides data to produce an Impact Report posted at completion of program

Core Programs
Ongoing, established programs that may or may not have an evaluation component. These programs have already been evaluated as effective and proven their value.
