Extension Council

The Hancock County Extension Council, county staff and ISU Extension and Outreach staff work together to provide research-based learning opportunities for our citizens. Through this partnership, we carry Iowa State University’s land-grant mission across Hancock County.

We can anticipate trends, build relationships, and catalyze opportunities because we are part of the ongoing life of our communities, committed to healthy people, healthy environments, and healthy economies.

Hancock County Extension brings Iowa State University to you!

Extension Council members are elected by the voters of Hancock County to serve four year terms. They oversee the planning, preparation, marketing, and delivery of the extension educational program in the county. Extension councils provide, through a unique partnership with Iowa State University research-based, unbiased information and education to help you make informed decisions.
