Message from the Associate Dean and Extension Director  

My vision for the Cooperative Extension System (CES) in Arizona is to focus on the fundamentals consistent with the land grant mission of bringing the university to the people of the State of Arizona and bringing science to bear on practical problems. 

The formal or complete Arizona CES mission is stated very directly as:

To engage with people through applied research and education to improve lives, families, communities, environment, and economies in Arizona and beyond.

Our programs in all areas of the CES are doing well when we are working to accomplish this mission and document that fact.

This translates to four fundamental points for us all to follow, starting with myself every day that include:

1)         Do your job.
2)         Be a professional
3)         Be a good teammate with your colleagues.
4)         Do the right thing.
            a. Check with the following three questions: 1) Is it legal? 2) Is it ethical? and 3) Is it morally correct?

Sounds simple enough and it is certainly within our capacity.


"H2O - What do you Know?" Video - 4-Hers learn about weather, water & climate in Graham County

'H2O - What do you Know?': Graham County 4-Hers learn about Water, Weather & Climate

Arizona 4-H is the youth outreach program from the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension.

We take the science of the University - to the people of Arizona - in *every* County.

Recently, 4-Hers in Graham County learned about the importance of water, weather, and climate, as part of "H2O - What do you Know?"

Cooperative Extension YouTube Channel

In the "digital age" - with the quest for information, but shorter attention spans - educational organizations are communicating more and more via social media, websites, and using digital communications, like Zoom.

Arizona Cooperative Extension is working to be at the forefront of this trend, in communicating with short, to-the-point videos.

Check out Cooperative Extension's YouTube Channel:
