With a presence in all 88 Ohio counties, Ohio State University Extension strives to engage citizens within urban, rural, and suburban communities. As populations have shifted, so has the need of Ohio’s urban counties. Thus, to help ensure Extension remains vibrant, relevant, and accessible in all communities, a team of faculty, staff, and students conducted a case study, focusing on the National Urban Extension Leaders four themes of positioning, programs, personnel, and partnerships. The data provided insight into what Extension can do to address the urban context of scale, diversity, complexity, and urban-rural interface.
