We are also your link to other WVU Extension offices and to West Virginia University’s related colleges. WVU’s Marshall County Extension Office is part of the national land-grant system. Each office has the same mission as its foundation: to help people put knowledge to work.

Each WVU Extension Office can provide the public with information on many topics from many resources. The Marshall County Extension Office faculty and staff provide assistance and educational programs in the following areas: Agriculture & Natural Resources, 4-H Youth Development and Family & Community Development. To meet and support the needs of local people and communities, county faculty and staff involve local residents in developing and leading specific programs and activities.

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.
