Part of the National Cooperative Extension System
All universities engage in research and teaching, but the nation’s more than 100
land-grant colleges and universities including WVU, have another
critical mission: Extension. Extension means reaching out, and along with teaching
and research land-grant institutions extend their resources, solving public needs
with college or university resources through local programs. With more than 3,000
county offices in the USA, the
National Cooperative Extension System is the local front door for many
citizens to their state land-grant institutions.
