County Mission

With an office in each Wisconsin county, Cooperative Extension develops practical educational programs tailored to local needs and based on university knowledge and research.

County-based Extension educators are University of Wisconsin faculty and staff who are experts in agriculture and agribusiness, community and economic development, natural resources, family living and youth development.

Extension county-based educators live and work with the people they serve in communities across the state. Extension specialists work on UW System campuses where they access current research and knowledge. Collaboration between county and campus faculty is the hallmark of Cooperative Extension in Wisconsin.

Cooperative Extension partners with local, county, state and federal government to address public issues. Educators plan and carry out programs with a wide array of community partners -- volunteers, business and educational groups and advisors.

Using state-of-the-art technology, Wisconsin's Cooperative Extension brings educational programs to even the most remote parts of the state. Communication and computer networks link county Extension offices and UW campus departments with other universities, state and federal agencies and other sources of knowledge and information around the world.
