There’s a reason we do what we do in Iowa State University Extension and Outreach: We want a strong Iowa. That’s why we partner with Iowans and harness the resources of our university for communities and farmers to thrive, for families and children to be healthy, and eventually to turn the world over to the next generation better than we found it. Because a strong Iowa is what we all want.  Our goal is to provide education and partnerships designed to solve today’s problems and prepare for the future.
In shaping our goals, next steps, and programming we would love to hear your ideas, feedback, and suggestions!  Please take a minute to provide that information.
Thank you!
