to University of Illinois Extension — an educational institution with a 100 year history and a bright future for the 21st century.

U of I Extension focuses on bringing University of Illinois resources to the people — where they are.

If you are interested in helping diverse populations meet challenges in an ever-changing competitive environment, then Extension may be for you.

Extension is on the cutting edge of many important evolving trends. The use of technology is one. Extension is increasingly using electronic delivery of information and computer-assisted problem-solving and decision-making models.

In addition, Extension has a firm commitment to improved understanding of the environment and appropriate use of our natural resources.

The present magnitude and dynamics of new knowledge, technological, environmental, social or economic concerns—make lifelong learning imperative for all people. People in suburban, urban and rural areas, rich and poor, public and private sectors, need quick access to new knowledge and research. Every day Extension meets that challenge to help all people reach their potential.
