Office of the Vice President & Dean for Extension and Agriculture

Utah State University Extension is unique in structure and function. Because of its partnership with federal, state and local governments and its network of county offices and state universities, Extension can efficiently deliver educational programs at the grassroots level throughout the state and nation. Clearly, this structure is important for Utah.

Our faculty and staff support economic development, land-use planning, home-based businesses, community leadership and sustainable practices, all of which contribute to maintaining Utah’s high quality of life. USU provides the tools and expertise communities need to shape their futures.
