National Public Policy Education Conference

First organized in the 1950s, the National Public Policy Education Conference (NPPEC) provided Extension educators and other professionals with the research-based information needed to work with citizens on controversial public issues.

The annual conference offered a variety of topics. In each, experts explain all facets of the issues and provide participants with materials they could use in public education programs. The combination of research-based information and educational materials and techniques provided at these conferences was unique among training opportunities for policy educators.

The last conference took place in 2006.  Use of the conference format as a tool to enhance public policy education has end for several reasons, including the decline in the number of designated public policy educators within Extension, the expense of staging and traveling to conferences, and reduced budgets.

Materials are posted online for conferences between 1996 and 2006.
