FSLI Cohort 15 Second Year Webinar Series - Shared screen with speaker view

Some of our discussion about "service" in the name has been in the context of how much of the educators time is spent on education versus individual consulting
Joseph H. Sullivan
39:06
So as we move on I'll just say we view extension primarily as education (teaching) not service in the sense that all of our faculty have to have a service component as part of the big 3 - RTS
Damona Doye
41:33
Our university touts its ranking in the "nation's best buy" list so affordability is definitely a focus as is accessibility. We have less restrictive admission requirements than many.
Stephen Cameron
42:05
Purdue similarly touts it's affordability - sell the ranking you win?
Damona Doye
42:46
Yes!
Darrell Donahue
43:00
Some what yes
Erik Ervin
43:22
Isn't the ranking model getting better for affordability because they are giving points for number of Pell grant recipients?
BobbyTorres
44:08
Unfortunately one of the data points in determining rankings is admission rates. This directly affects the mission of "serving all students".
Erik Ervin
44:15
Our access improved with COVID because we had to give out millions more in financial aid to try and reach our freshmen enrollment target

When we go to Washington, D.C. every March (except this year) to do "the Ask" for funding for Land Grant Universities through APLU, sharing our accomplishments with the Congressional members & their staff is important for showing that we are helping the Senators' constituents/voters. They will be more open to funding us if we're helping the people that voted them to be there.
Will Evans
46:26
Miss. State is still very accessible to state-wide students
Jacqueline Wilkins
46:55
Articulated agreements could help
Erik Ervin
47:00
We had that guaranteed program at Virginia tech also and it helped us get lots of transfers in CALS
Jacqueline Wilkins
47:11
Or boycotting as a nation the Us News and World Reports ; )
John McEvoy
47:26
NDSU is very accessible but has been struggling with low enrollment for the past few years
Joseph H. Sullivan
47:28
Desmond - my daughter actually did their bridge program and was very successful
ahmedna
47:43
Yes, we use articulation agreements for admission at junior level.
Damona Doye
48:00
We're also affordable to many out-of-state students. Nearly half of the undergrad population is out-of-state.
TIffany Heng-Moss
48:12
Nebraska is too.
Desmond Layne
49:37
Joe - glad to hear that.
Mark Haub
50:34
KSU is test optional this year as well and we have 2+2/articulation options with state community colleges.
Desmond Layne
51:24
When I was at WSU, we had about 17 articulation agreements with CC's for 2+2
Damona Doye
54:32
The authors make that point that we are to blame but not educating our students.
Jacqueline Wilkins
55:29
Agree, there should be a land-grant orientation at hire, intentional student engagement, and ongoing land-grant accountability
Erik Ervin
57:32
Many President's get coached-up about Land-grant mission and give it lip service but do they live it in their day to day?
Damona Doye
58:54
I wonder that as well. They like to say we're present in all the counties but it can be a challenge to get them to advocate for funding for off-campus personnel.
Jacqueline Wilkins
59:12
Dean Cathann Kress coined that term and it has been incredibly hepful
Jacqueline Wilkins
01:00:06
@Damona— true and to get them to consider main campus decisions impact on off-campus personnel and the communities served.
Will Evans
01:01:08

Desmond Layne
01:04:10
Teaching also through links with 4-H, FFA, etc. that feed children into LGU's
John McEvoy
01:04:21
Thanks for the great discussion! Nice job, Damona, David, and Steve!
Jacqueline Wilkins
01:05:09
Extension educators are part of the teaching excellence but the depth of knowledge and experiential application of research and teaching is often understated and misunderstood.
Joseph H. Sullivan
01:05:13
Ditto - great job and discussion - all stay well!
Stephen Cameron
01:05:13
