Nebraska Extension helps Nebraskans put knowledge to work. It provides a variety of educational opportunities, delivered via a variety of ways, so participants have knowledge they can use to make sound decisions to better their lives. Extension assistants, educators and specialists teach, facilitate and collaborate in providing research-based information to Nebraska residents annually. A Nebraska mainstay since 1915, Extension carries forward the land-grant university mission of bringing the university's resources to the state. As a trusted source of factual information today, Extension is just as vital as ever, and perhaps even more so, due to the diverse, complex -and often confusing- issues people encounter today.
