What is Cornell Cooperative Extension?

The nationwide network of Cooperative Extension programs began in 1914 as a means of applying land-grant university research in understandable and useful ways to farmers and rural families. Cornell Cooperative Extension is a key outreach system of Cornell University with a strong public mission and an extensive local presence that is responsive to needs in New York communities. The Cornell Cooperative Extension educational system enables people to improve their livesand communities through partnerships that put experience and research knowledge to work.

Cornell Cooperative Extension in Erie County provides equal program and employment opportunities.
