Impact Beyond the Profession

The Forum for Family and Consumer Issues (FFCI) gives Extension professionals an avenue for publishing refereed articles that fulfill Extension's mission of "Helping people put knowledge to work." Articles published in The Forum often have impacts that traditional professional and academic journals do not because The Forum appeals to a diverse audience that includes educators, professionals, and lay people. Some examples of impacts that have come to the attention of the editor over the years include the following.

And so on. The Forum knows no geographical boundaries. It can bring an educational program originating in New Jersey to a rural county in North Carolina. An article written by a Kentucky Extension specialist can change the way lawyers in another state advise their clients. The Forum can help a nursing home in Virginia evaluate a proposed change in the way it cares for its patients. A survey taken of readers' opinions can help shape state legislation. True to its mission, The Forum publishes articles that make a difference -- that have "impact beyond the profession."
