The characteristics that distinguish this merging from that of other organizations are: (1) project-focused on specific and important problems and concerns of students, faculty and staff, and lay partners; (2) projects are planned and conducted as concerted efforts in which the participating research and extension implementers are mutually responsible for accomplishing the objectives.
