The strategic plan identifies four primary goals: engage with the community and Cornell University, ensure quality in our five program areas, explore regional funding and partnership opportunities, and stabilize Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCESC) resources.
The plans of work are divided into CCESC’s five program areas: Agriculture and Food Systems, Environment and Natural Resources, Community and Economic Vitality, Nutrition and Healthy Families, and Family and Youth Development.
CCESC staff and executive director worked with the board of directors, program advisory committees, community organizational partners, volunteers, and CCE State Extension staff to develop these foundational guiding documents.

The plans are meant to serve as a guide for Extension staff when planning and implementing educational programs, opportunities, and outreach for the Sullivan County community.

Please don’t hesitate to send additional feedback or to ask questions for further insight into our system and programs.
