The Smith-Lever Act of 1914 established the Cooperative Extension Service, a state-by-state national network of educators who extend university-based knowledge to the people.  Cooperative Extension came to Alaska in 1930,  a year after Congress amended the legislation to include the territory. Extension became a department of the Alaska Agricultural College and School of Mines, which is now the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

In its early days, Extension helped Matanuska colonists, homesteaders and others thrive in Alaska’s challenging environment. We continue to meet the needs of Alaskans today —  whether it’s helping them establish community gardens, can salmon, use a GPS or learn the best way to use solar energy. We provide informal education with a purpose.
