MSU Extension - Resources for Organizational Development: Evaluation, Applied Research, & Scholarship Resources

This is a guide to the many resources and services available to Extension personnel and Educators in Michigan. It is intended for you to be able to easily locate and utilize electronic and print resources.


Extension is accountable to a number of stakeholders—participants, funders, local leaders, collaborators, and other professionals. These stakeholders need information about Extension and its work. By carefully evaluating Extension programs, objective information can be shared about the programming process, the impacts of programming and the changing need for alternative efforts. Applied research and program evaluation results facilitate more objective decision making—and identify opportunities to use scarce resources in creating meaningful change.
