Ohio State University Extension

Ohio State University Extension brings the knowledge of the university directly to you. They fulfill the land-grant mission of The Ohio State University by interpreting knowledge and research developed by Extension and other faculty and staff at the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, Ohio State main campus, and other land-grant universities – so Ohioans can use the scientifically based information to better their lives, businesses and communities.

The Extension system is the world’s largest non-formal educational system. Extension’s hallmark is programming delivered by professionals to address the needs of the local community while also addressing state, national, and global issues. Our practical educational programs combine the needs of local citizens and communities with new research and technical information.

Extension provides practical advice, sensible solutions, and realistic down-to-earth answers for ALL Ohioans. The faculty and staff of the Department of Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering (FABE) have extension appointments and work with many county extension offices as well as other agencies and organizations. We work closely with those outside of our department to solve problems locally and globally.
