Perception of Current and Ideal Practices Related to Public Value in Extension
Downey, Laura H.; Peterson, Donna J.; Franz, Nancy
Journal of Extension, v55 n4 Article 4RIB1 Aug 2017
Extension professionals are increasingly encouraged to engage in practices that can advance the public value movement. It is unclear, however, whether recommended practices related to public value are being adopted. In 2014, 235 Extension professionals at Mississippi State University responded to an organizational capacity survey that included questions on public value practices. Research described here explored discrepancies between current and ideal public value practices among Extension professionals. Paired-samples "t"-tests revealed statistically significant discrepancies between current and ideal public value practices. The findings can inform efforts by Extension professionals seeking to increase awareness and practices related to public value.
