Iowa State University Exrension and Outreach serves as a 99 county campus, conne ting the needs of Iowans with Iowa State University research and resources. We provide education and partnerships designed to solve today's problems and prepare for the future.
The Winnebago 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 Winnebago County.
Extension Council members are elected by the voters of Winnebago County to serve four year terms. They oversee the planning, preparation, marketing, and delivery of the extension educational program in the county. Every county in Iowa has an extension council. Extension councils provide, through a unique partnership with Iowa State University and other federal and state organizations, research-based, unbiased information and education to help county citizens make better decisions.
