Engaging Cooperative Extension to Build Community's Capacity

The Cooperative Extension System is a nationwide, non-credit educational network designed to help people use research-based knowledge to improve their lives. The service is provided by the state's designated land-grant universities. In most states the educational offerings are in the areas of agriculture and food, home and family, the environment, community economic development, youth, and 4-H.
