Iowa State University Extension personnel are members of departments and colleges all across the Iowa State campus. ISU Extension specialists – those located on campus and those in the counties – have the responsibility to connect Iowans (and people beyond the state’s borders) with the research of the university. Many campus-based ISU Extension specialists also serve as faculty or researchers or have additional responsibilities in their department or college. Their work is as multi-faceted as their topics – shared with Iowans and people around the globe through publications, websites, blogs, trainings, workshops, curricula and other ways that engage people in research-based educational experiences.

ISU Extension provides education on topics from agriculture to business and industry to community development and family issues to youth programs.
