NC State Coronavirus Communications Toolkit

UComm has developed a list of resources, tips and guidelines for NC State communicators to use as we navigate this challenging time together. Extension employees can find useful information and guidance on topics like content strategy, media relations and social media.

Employee Reporting – Collecting Impacts

We’re working to compile the very best examples of the inspiring and innovative work Extension employees are doing to stay connected with their audiences and help North Carolinians navigate the novel coronavirus across the state. Please use the Google Sheet below to share examples that you feel best illustrate the value of your county and campus Extension programming.

Extension county employees can find guidance on collecting demographics from Zoom meetings, reporting telework activities, and utilizing ERS, along with a variety of tip sheets, on the Extension Evaluation website.
