Let Us Introduce You ...
to University of Illinois Extension — an educational institution
with a 100 year history and a bright future for the 21st
U of I Extension focuses on bringing University of Illinois
resources to the people — where they are.
If you are interested in helping diverse populations meet challenges
in an ever-changing competitive environment, then Extension may
be for you.
Extension is on the cutting edge of many important evolving
trends. The use of technology is one. Extension is increasingly
using electronic delivery of information and computer-assisted
problem-solving and decision-making models.
In addition, Extension has a firm commitment to improved understanding
of the environment and appropriate use of our natural resources.
The present magnitude and dynamics of new knowledge, technological,
environmental, social or economic concerns—make lifelong
learning imperative for all people. People in suburban, urban
and rural areas, rich and poor, public and private sectors, need
quick access to new knowledge and research. Every day Extension
meets that challenge to help all people reach their potential.
