Michigan State University Extension Office

MSU Extension is an educational outreach arm of Michigan State University, providing information and offering ongoing educational programs in three areas:

  • Agriculture and Natural Resources
  • Children, Youth, and Families
  • Community and Economic Development

These programs have similar goals. They seek to help people better understand their environments, make the best possible use of their resources, and enhance the quality of life for themselves, their families, and their communities through education and wise decision making.

We are part of a national network of Extension services in every state in the United States. It is jointly funded by federal, state, and county governments. "Extension" means extending the educational resources of MSU beyond East Lansing campus. We are in the business of helping people help themselves.

Michigan State University Extension programs and materials are open to all without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, marital status, or family status.

Learn more about MSU Extension by visiting our website.


We are investing in our children, developing leaders of the future through the MSU Extension and its 4-H program. Mentorship, hands-on projects, and meaningful leadership opportunities empower and inspire our young people to develop lifelong skills.
