About our health extension model

The MSU model of health extension is based on multi-directional relationships between campus- and clinic-based MSU researchers, local MSU Extension educators, and health partners in communities in order to improve health outcomes. We do this by designing and conducting community-based health research and implementing effective local programs that address health, thus fulfilling the mission of the land-grant university to translate health research into community-based education. 

What is MSU Extension?

Michigan State University (MSU) Extension helps people improve their lives by bringing the vast knowledge resources of MSU directly to individuals, communities and businesses.

With a presence in every Michigan county, Extension faculty and staff members provide tools to live and work better. From a personal meeting to information online, MSU Extension educators work every day to provide the most current information when people need it to ensure success – in the workplace, at home and in the community.
