Over 65 percent of University of Minnesota Extension staff live and work in greater Minnesota. They engage individuals, organizations and communities to ask challenging questions, discover science-based answers, and make a difference. Together, we create a better world through healthy food, thriving youth, vibrant communities, cleaner water and stronger families.
University of Minnesota Extension faculty and collaborators conduct nearly 200 peer-reviewed research projects each year, in order to discover the science-based solutions that will result in practical education and engage Minnesotans in building a better future.
