The nEXT Generation project will take place in two phases: a Planning Phase to map out the desired future state for Cooperative Extension, and an Implementation Phase to implement the changes across the organization. The project is currently focused on the Planning Phase.
As of August 2016, the expected project timeline is:
- Through late fall of 2016: nEXT Generation project work groups will complete current state assessments and needs assessments.
- Late fall 2016 through early 2017: options assessments created based on results from current state and needs assessments
- Early-mid 2017: future state assessments and recommendations presented to the Chancellor
- Mid-2017: Implementation Phase
