Making a difference by connecting community needs and university resources to address critical issues in Minnesota.
Extension researchers and educators work to discover
science-based answers that make a difference.
Together, we create a better world by:
• Keeping food safe and affordable
• Preparing today’s youth to learn and lead
• Ensuring Minnesota communities are strong
• Improving our environment
• Helping families make better decisions
Extension makes University research and
knowledge available to Minnesota residents, businesses and communities!
