We extend education to North Dakota residents of all ages and
walks of life. You’ll find us at work in your county, at Research Extension
Centers and at the main campus of North Dakota State University. As North
Dakotans work to improve their lives, we’re there to help. Our efforts have a
special emphasis on strengthening agriculture and developing the potential of
youth, adults and communities. Our efforts are funded by county, state and
federal government, and grants and contracts.
We have a rich history of extending North Dakota’s land-grant
university. Federal legislation established Extension in 1914, but years before
that our predecessors were extending education through lectures, institutes,
tours, fairs and demonstrations.
