Since 1914, UW Extension had helped Wyoming citizens and communities respond to challenges and changes. We have offices in each of the state's 23 counties and the Wind River Indian Reservation. Although our roots are in agriculture, UW Extension has broadened its educational mission to encompass many of the contemporary challenges facing Wyoming's people and its rural communities. We're committed to providing lifelong learning opportunities as we bring the resources of the University of Wyoming home to you! UW Extension uses a team-based approach to educational program leadership. This model revolves around five State Initiative Teams, which assess the needs of the Wyoming citizens and communities and then select and develop educations programs around those needs.
