Area 2 Annual Report

As a statewide engagement arm of UW–Madison, the Division of Extension embodies the Wisconsin Idea to extend university knowledge to every corner of the state. That mission started in 1912 with Extension’s first agent making farm visits and continues today along with community and business development, youth engagement, and well-being programming. Our statewide network of educators and specialists with the UW–Madison College of Agricultural & Life Sciences and on UW campuses across Wisconsin is responding every day to emerging and longstanding hurdles residents are overcoming to compete and prosper. We’ve identified key opportunities to leverage local resources and leading research to affect change and improve lives through:

  • Supporting Wisconsin’s Agriculture Industry
  • Fostering Leadership and Civic Engagement
  • Supporting Wisconsin’s Agriculture Industry
  • Enhancing Resilient Natural Resource Systems
  • Furthering Positive Youth Development
