OSU Extension helps Oklahomans solve local issues and concerns, promote leadership and manage resources wisely. 

Extension celebrates 110th anniversary

OSU Extension has been empowering Oklahomans to make informed choices with research-based knowledge for 110 years. While programming has evolved over decades, educators are still at the heart of every county Extension office. Specializing in family and consumer sciences, agriculture and natural resources, economic development, community health, and 4-H youth development, these educators are liaisons between Oklahomans and OSU.
