NDSU Extension Service
The NDSU Extension Service creates learning partnerships that help adults and youth enhance their lives and their communities. This purpose is accomplished through the dissemination of information and by implementing educational programs geared to the changing needs of North Dakotans.
Faculty and staff on campus work primarily within the academic departments of the College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources, and the College of Human Development and Education, but also the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. Their appointments in these departments make them partners in NDSU's academic programs and research. County and area staff across the state complete the link between those NDSU programs and North Dakota citizens.
The NDSU Extension Service focuses its work around ten program areas:
- Community Vitality
- Crop Management
- Family Economics
- Farm Business Management
- 4-H Youth Development
- Horticulture and Forestry
- Human Development and Family Science
- Livestock Management
- Natural Resource Management
- Nutrition, Food Safety and Health
The NDSU Extension Service provides user-friendly information that reflects research efforts in North Dakota and across the country.
