Community Based Education
Cooperative Extension offers timely access to university research and knowledge through educational colleagues in 72 county offices, on five 4-year campuses and within three tribal nations. We work with local, state and federal partners to offer educational programs that address the important issues of individuals, families, business and communities.
Inclusive Excellence in our educational programming means culturally competent and assessable content and instructional methods well as alternative program development models appropriate to the needs of our audiences. It means that we strive to increase access to traditionally underserved audiences and partnerships through special outreach efforts and by listening to the voices of our learners and our stakeholders. We constantly seek to increase our capacity to be effective working across cultures, ethnicities, abilities and lifestyles through professional development opportunities.
