Leadership development is critical for the success of N.C. Cooperative Extension. Extension Organizational Development (EOD) works with partners across the organization, college, and university to provide leadership development programs for employees at all levels and in all roles within the organization. The following is a list of current and future leadership development programs:

  • The Academy to Advance Leadership within Extension (AALE) is a rigorous program to cultivate and promote the development of personnel within North Carolina Cooperative Extension and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) at North Carolina State University who are affiliated with Extension.
  • CALS Proud – The main focus of CALS Proud is to provide opportunities for our community to become more connected to the amazing work done each and every day by those in our College, and to leave participants with new skills that they can use when back at their work sites.

In addition to these leadership development programs, there are many other leadership programs available internally within the university and externally outside the university. The following is a list of leadership development programs.
