Cornell Cooperative Extension Vision
Cornell Cooperative Extension is a respected and trusted leader in linking university research and experiential learning to the problems and issues facing a diverse society. Drawing on public and private resources, Cornell Cooperative Extension provides innovative, flexible, and participant-driven programs that promote new ways of learning, thinking, and acting. This enhances the quality of life by promoting individual growth, strengthening families, improving the economic well-being of businesses, enhancing the environment, and building stronger communities. Cornell Cooperative Extension is committed to partnerships among county, state, and federal governments; faculty, staff, administrators and volunteers; and public and private entities. The strength and durability of these partnerships depend on shared concerns, shared responsibility, shared authority, shared costs, and shared recognition. Cornell Cooperative Extension is committed to pluralism because differences enrich people and programs. Extension values and pursues diversity in faculty, staff, volunteers, and program participants.
