What we do
Extension brings Minnesotans together to build a better future through University science-based knowledge, expertise and training.
Extension's research and outreach is organized broadly into four departments: Department of Agricultural and Natural Resource Systems, Department of Community Development, Department of Family Health and Wellbeing, and Department of Youth Development.
