Reporting Your Impact: Telling Your Story 

How does your work make an impact in the community? How you tell your story—whether through reports, documents, social media, interpretative events, or conversations—communicates how the work of Extension influences the people across the state.

Stakeholders want to understand how investments in Division of Agriculture research and educational programs are strengthening Arkansas communities. 

Part of the program evaluation process is reporting of our efforts and our impacts. The following resources help you navigate the reporting process for Arkansas Extension. Here are some tools to help you craft your own impact story.
