Often OSU Extension hosts an annual urban summit to highlight and address the unique work done throughout Ohio's metro areas. The summit is open to all interested Extension professionals who believe in or want to better understand the Extension mission in the urban context.
- To better understand and address the real-life context of Extension work in urban communities (scale, diversity, complexity, urban-rural interface).
- To strategically leverage relevant resources from the university, college, National Urban Extension Leaders (NUEL), and other national networks.
- To collaboratively focus on OSU Extension's strategies to be relevant locally, responsive statewide, recognized nationally.
- To strengthen Ohio by strengthening cities and urban-rural connections.
