Careers

University of Illinois Extension is a statewide network of professionals dedicated to creating local community impact and statewide transformation. We do this by translating research and knowledge into practical programs for Illinois residents. Our programs target youth and adults, individuals and families, as well as business owners and community leaders.

Our staffing needs are diverse, but we often have openings for those with an interest in education, agriculture, environmental stewardship, foods and nutrition, and community development. And we are always on the lookout for those individuals gifted in office administration, program planning, IT, and communications!
