Extension Philosophy on Partnerships

Extension’s external partnerships with individuals and organizations should be synergisticand mutually beneficial relationships that yield educational programs and products that:
  • Maximize the use of Extension’s resources, 
  • Extend Extension’s reach and impact, 
  • Maintain Extension’s credibility and neutrality, and 
  • Support outreach and engagement efforts of the university. 
External partnerships may be formal or informal, and may or may not involve money. New partnerships will be pursued only when:
1. Educational programs and program goals are consistent with Extension’s overall goals and priorities.
2. In accepting funding and performing the work, Extension does not compromise its objectivity or non-regulatory role.
3. Adequate resources are available to properly support the expectations and programs of the partnership related to personnel, facilities, equipment, supplies and other costs.
4. The expertise to do the programs exists within and/or is available to the Extension organization.
5. The values and reputation of the organization providing the funding are consistent with and complimentary to Extension’s core values and reputation.
6. Appropriate county, district and state programmatic and fiscal administrative approvals have been obtained (written or email). 
 
As OSU Extension professionals consider entering into external local, regional or state partnerships, each potential partnership should be considered on its own merits. Specific elements should be affirmed before any collaborative activities begin. These elements include:
  1. Educational programs and program goals are consistent with Extension’s overall goals and priorities.
  2. The program supports state and local program priorities, and fits within the local unit’s plan of work. A written plan has been mutually developed and agreed upon that addresses the following elements of the proposed project:
  3. Clear project goals,
  4. Extension’s role in the project,
  5. The partner organization’s role in the project,
  6. Fiscal management processes for the project,
  7. Reporting responsibilities,
  8. Communication patterns,
  9. Shared recognition and credit, 
  10. How contributions of each partner will be determined, and
  11. How ownership of creative and scholarly works that come from the project will be determined.
  12. Extension does not compromise its objectivity or non-regulatory role.
  13. Extension’s participation focuses on teaching, service, and research within the scope of Extension’s program areas.
  14. Extension is not a regulatory or enforcement organization.
