Texas Speaks


What is Texas Speaks:
Texas Speaks is a survey giving communities throughout the state an open forum opportunity to express the strengths and needs of their communities. The anonymous survey will be looking to understand and solve issues facing Texas communities, identifying relevant issues fundamental to the program development of AgriLife Extension, and it will include an open feedback section for areas not listed within the survey. Data from the Texas Speaks survey will be compiled at local levels and given to stakeholders. Statewide data will be made available to state agencies and decision-makers.
