Introducing the Purdue Extension Specialist Quarterly Highlight

New to Extension, the Purdue Extension Specialist Quarterly Highlight will feature two top programs administered by Purdue specialists. Dr. Jason Henderson and Purdue Agricultural Communications have coordinated this highlight to encompass a report on successful programs that have occurred within a three-month time range, providing you with four newsletters each year.

Upon review of statistics provided by Digital Measures, the quarterly highlight will showcase two of the most engaging programs. The Purdue Extension Specialist Quarterly Highlight will be published and updated on the landing page of the Hub, sent out via email, and included in the Live Well. Work Well. Newsletter.

The first Purdue Extension Specialist Quarterly Highlight covers past programs from April 2021 – June 2021. This highlight presents topics on “Green Infrastructure in the North Central Region: Building an Equitable and Just Strategy and Workforce” as well as “Food Safety Training for High School.”

Congratulations Extension Specialists, thank you for your hard work!

Event Safety Checklists & Approvals

Updated information (11/13/2020)
For Extension event safety plans, please indicate that you will monitor changes in the state’s color-coded map (https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/2393.htm) to determine the status of state requirements regarding events during the day of your event. Governor Holcomb placed a 25-person limit on social gatherings for red counties, where viral spread is high. Social gatherings in orange counties, where spread is considered medium to high, are limited to 50 people.

When planning events, you still need to complete an Event Safety Plan per the process below. If you are planning an off-campus event, you need to check the status of the county to determine where that county is in terms of viral spread and be prepared to adjust plans if the status changes prior to your event. Working with local health officials is recommended for events with more than 25 people.

Send completed Event Safety Plans to safetyplan@purdue.edu for approval.

Currently, university travel guidelines have not changed since Oct. 16. A copy of the college’s travel waiver request form can be found on the Business Office website.
