Extension Regional Office - Rochester

The University of Minnesota Extension is making a difference by connecting community needs and University resources to address critical issues in Minnesota.

Our vision focuses on enhancing three main themes:

  • All Minnesotans have access to Extension programs and information, including use of technology;
  • Extension programs are research based, relevant and of the highest quality;
  • Citizens and stakeholders are aware of the measurable difference Extension makes in the lives of Minnesotans.

Extension makes a difference in Minnesota:

  • Extension makes University research timely, relevant and useful to people where they live and work
  • Extension helps people with today's issues and prepares them for future challenges
  • Extension's changes build a future based on the strengths of its past
  • The new delivery model introduces more focus and specialization while keeping local service at the core
  • Extension's local presence will be expanded in new ways
  • The new delivery model keeps Agriculture and 4-H high in Extension's priority list, while recognizing the
    additional ways Extension can connect community needs and U of M resources
  • The new delivery model keeps quality, clarity, and flexibility while assuring more fiscal stability
