Supporting UW-Extension’s larger mission, Cooperative Extension works alongside the people of Wisconsin to improve lives and communities. Our educators don’t lecture or give grades in a typical classroom. Instead, we deliver education where people live and work – on the farm, in schools and community centers. Cooperative Extension educators also speak to civic groups and county boards, write newspaper columns, do radio and TV programs, facilitate meetings and build coalitions to solve community problems.
With an office in each Wisconsin county and faculty on UW Campuses, Cooperative Extension develops practical educational programs tailored to local needs and based on university knowledge and research.
