Area Leaders

As of July 1, 2018, OSU Extension professionals will operate within smaller administrative units, led by area leaders. These smaller units (groups of counties) replace the five previous regions. The area leaders will act as operational guides, performance coaches, and connectors for impacts between counties, across the state, and with university resources. They also will facilitate implementation of the stewardship model in each county. The area leaders will supervise all employees at the local level within their assigned area, with the exception of community nutrition professionals.

These individuals were chosen to be area leaders due to their strong reputation for educational programming and consistently high annual performance, their managerial competencies, their vision for supporting Extension colleagues, and their ability to be excellent stewards of local funding.
