Georgia L. Stevens (2003)

Georgia L. Stevens' 30-year career has focused on the development and sustainability of children, youth and families. Her first work focused on involvement of citizens in public affairs efforts with grassroots coalitions. Stevens was a consumer and industry affairs specialist for various USDA agencies prior to being named Extension family policy issues specialist and family and community diversity specialist for Nebraska Cooperative Extension. She had a key role in development of the national resource materials, Public Issues Education: Increasing Competence in Resolving Public Issues. Throughout her career, she has created multi-media materials that make issues “real” to citizens. Stevens has assisted local coalitions in dealing with the impact of school-age child care on private and public sector work, family policy issues, and the family and community changes as new immigrants and refugees move to the Midwest. Based on her research with coalition building, Stevens is developing educational with cross-cultural methodologies. Stevens did her undergraduate and graduate work at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, earning a Ph.D. at the University of Maryland.
