Deliver programs to address the greatest needs of Tennessee families, farmers, youth, and communities.
Outcome: IT Desktop Support
IT desktop support requests are now being handled through UT’s Office of Information Technology on main campus, rather than by the six regional IT professionals. This transition has allowed Extension IT professionals to spend more time developing and conducting training and improving networks across the state. Core Competency Framework was developed to help train administrative staff. An IT coordinator position was created for UT Extension.
The team was charged with equipping Extension to provide excellent education using technology.
