Needs Assessment Questionnaire
NC Cooperative Extension wants to improve its program and better serve the citizens of Guilford County, so we have decided to distribute a needs assessment. The purpose of this needs assessment is to identify important issues and opportunities in Guilford County to help guide and shape our research and educational activities over the next five years. By completing this survey, you are helping direct the work of Extension in serving your needs.

If you are one of our beloved community partners or simply an organization serving Guilford County, please distribute to your colleagues as well as the clients that you serve. Your answers are anonymous. Your completion of this survey is greatly appreciated. The survey is linked below. Thank you again for your participation.
