    K-State Research and Extension is dedicated to a safe, sustainable, competitive food and fiber system and to strong, healthy communities, families, and youth through integrated research, analysis, and education.

    K-State Research and Extension provides practical, research-based information and educational programs to address critical issues facing individuals, families, agricultural producers, business operators, and communities.

    K-State Research and Extension is organized into the following core mission themes; agricultural industry competitiveness; food, nutrition, health, and safety; natural resources and environmental management; youth, family and community development.

    One K-State Research and Extension partner, the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station (KAES), conducts original research both on and off campus. Twenty-four departments in five colleges are involved. K-State Research and Extension is also strongly allied with the Graduate School in training graduate students; interested graduate students are encouraged to seek research assistantships. Many undergraduate students work for K-State Research and Extension, which greatly adds to the classroom experience. Off-campus research is centered at two research-extension centers, two research centers, and 11 experiment fields in various parts of the state.

    The other K-State Research and Extension partner, the Cooperative Extension Service, provides an important learning bridge between the university and the people of the state. It applies scientific knowledge, principles, and practices to the grassroots problems of Kansans. At the same time, this unique information delivery system brings back requests for new knowledge to the research staff at the university.

    The Cooperative Extension Service staffs five area offices (two operate as part of a Research/Extension Center) and helps maintain county extension offices, staffed by off-campus K-State faculty members, in all 105 Kansas counties.

    County extension agents, as official representatives of the United States Department of Agriculture and K-State, are responsible for making people aware of educational programs in the core mission themes. The agents serve as a local source of information regarding programs of many states and federal agencies, and then help people apply this information to their specific situation.

    Information is published in scientific journals; in station bulletins, extension bulletins, national and international conferences; and in popular journals and news releases to the press and radio and television stations. Requests for station publications should be sent to the Distribution Center, Umberger Hall.
