Overview of Colorado State University Extension
Colorado State University Extension provides education, information and programs for the benefit of every Coloradan. Our goal, as part of the University’s community outreach, is to help you improve your life. Groups and individuals will find resources on topics ranging from youth development, family finances, health, agriculture, food safety and natural resources to home and commercial gardening. You’ll find Extension agents, specialists, support staff and volunteers in every corner of the State, ready to answer questions, provide research-based insight and create programs to address specific local issues.
Extension is part of the land-grant system, under which the first American public universities were established. Beginning with legislation signed by Abraham Lincoln in 1862, a series of federal laws set the standards. Each state was given 10,000 acres of federal land with the stipulation that it was to be sold and the proceeds used to create a public university dedicated to agriculture and “the mechanic arts” (engineering). The universities were also given a triple mandate: instruction, research and dissemination of information to the public. At its beginning in 1914, Colorado State University Extension had a decidedly agricultural emphasis that reflected both the federal requirement and the predominant lifestyle in Colorado. That focus has broadened over the decades to accommodate changing priorities.
