What is Extension?

All Universities engage in research and teaching, but land-grant universities like Montana State University have a third critical mission- Extension. Extension means reach out and "extending" resources, solving public needs with university resources through non-formal, not credit program.

Montana State University Extension is an educational resource dedicated to improving the quality of people's lives by providing research-based knowledge to strengthen the social, economic and environmental well-being of families, communities, and agricultural enterprises.

MSU Extension offer university resources for all Montanans to explore, even if they never set foot on campus. We provide access to useful information and expert knowledge via workshops, demonstrations, community meetings, publications, videos and the Web. Extension links a network of MSU faculty, topic specialists on the MSU-Bozeman campus and our Stillwater County agents, to the people.

  • 4-H and Youth Development

  • Natural Resources

  • Community and Economic Development

  • Family and Consumer Science

  • And much more!!!
