|Meet Our Leadership|
Through our partnerships with local and state governments, universities, and other organizations, we are able to reach millions of individuals each year. We offer workshops, training programs, and resources that address specific needs and challenges faced by communities across the country. Our programs help farmers to increase their crop yields, families to make healthy food choices, and youth to develop important life skills.
The LSU AgCenter Extension has a far-reaching impact on Louisiana's agricultural industry, economy, environment, and the health and well-being of its citizens. Its work is critical to the long-term sustainability and success of the state. Learn more about Extension or view our impact.
The impact of our cooperative extension programs is truly remarkable. We have helped to increase the profitability of local farms, improve the health of individuals and families, and promote economic development in communities. We have also helped to empower youth to become future leaders and contributing members of society.
