Extension centers

Extension's research and outreach is organized broadly into four centers: Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources; Community Vitality; Family Development; and Youth Development. Each center has teams of scientists and educators who work in statewide, regional and county organizations to share reliable, research-based education on topics affecting Minnesota's families and communities.
