About Extension Programs

Extension programs present useful information related to agriculture, home economics, youth development, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more.  We take programs to schools, gardens, community centers, and other places.

Our philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, play, develop, and lead.  We work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing our resources on providing quality information, education and problem-solving programs for real concerns.
