Statewide public service programs are the engines rebuilding Oregon’s economy. Knowledge grows from the ground up, from Extension to research and back again.

Here’s how it works: OSU Extension faculty work with business people, growers, foresters, individuals, and community leaders. They see first-hand what’s needed in Oregon’s business sectors and communities. Extension experts consult with scientists in the Agricultural Experiment Station and Forest Research Laboratory, where they focus research on critical issues and timely results. Knowledge developed from that research is brought back to the community through Extension’s outreach and engagement.
