About WSU Extension
With 39 locations throughout the state, WSU Extension is the front door to the University. Extension builds the capacity of individual, organization, businesses and communities, empowering them to find solutions for local issues and to improve their quality of life. Extension collaborates with communities to create a culture of life-long learning and is recognized for its accessible, learner-centered, relevant, high-quality, unbiased educational programs.
The result of a unique educational partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the nation’s land-grant universities, Extension engages people, organizations and communities through programs to advance knowledge, economic well-being and quality of life by fostering inquiry, learning, and the application of research. In 2014, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act, which established the Cooperative Extension Service. Join us as we celebrate Extension’s past contributions and look forward to the next 100 years of service. To learn more, visit.
In addition, Washington State University provides over 2,200 publications, numerous online educational opportunities, and other statewide educational programs and technical assistance from four Research and Extension Centers, 15 Academic Departments and six of WSU’s Academic Colleges.
