Global Initiatives

Minnesota is part of an increasingly connected global society, which benefits from exchanges in education, research and development.

Extension engages with scientists, teachers and learners around the world, and with a diverse society at home. Efforts build capacity locally and internationally to enhance livelihoods, while building a national network of professionals with expertise in similar initiatives.

Current efforts are funded through partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, grants from other partners and donor gifts.

Extension Global Initiatives programs meet at least one of three criteria:

  • A Minnesota-based organization is a partner or collaborator
  • The program supports a wider University of Minnesota initiative
  • Unique Extension expertise meets a critical need

Extension Global Initiatives connect University research and education/training to learners in:

  • The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer. Privacy
