National Urban Extension Leaders Logo, with text: land grant universities - communities - actionDescription

NUEL began in 2013 as a grass-roots effort from a group of passionate and committed urban Extension educators with the mission to  advocate and advance the strategic importance and long-term value of urban Extension activities by being relevant locally, responsive statewide, and recognized nationally.

NUEL is geared towards creating a network for collective impact currently with active participation from 23 states. NUEL is passionate and committed to moving urban Extension forward realizing each state in the Cooperative Extension System is different and may have diverse ideas, strategies of what urban represents, and how their goals are accomplished.

This webinar will cover the NUEL structure, goals, engagement benefits, and action team initiatives underway, strategies for involvement and networking opportunities. In essence, our goal is to share everything you ever wanted to know about NUEL and to encourage your involvement.

By engaging in the webinar you will have an opportunity to become a voice for urban Extension and offer perspective as this national effort continues to progress.

Register today for this important and timely webinar!
