Chi Epsilon Sigma

Founded in 1986 at Ohio State University Extension, the Alpha Chapter premiered as the first professional association for support staff and program assistants within Extension and was patterned after Epsilon Sigma Phi. Chi Epsilon Sigma's logo symbolizes the three L's: Life, Loyalty and Learning. The circle is endless, which signifies the endless number of friends you will make in this organization.

Specializations Listed Individually in OSU Extension Directory

In an effort to improve connectivity across the state, we encourage CES members/Support Staff to update their 'specializations' listing in their office's staff pages so it will be reflected in the OSU Extension Directory. Support staff that have listed their specializations in their profiles can be searched for in the directory. If you still need to update your profile, please add SPECIALIZATIONS as you could help mentor other support staff using one of your strengths.
