New Mexico State University's Extension Demonstration Train toured New Mexico in 1912, bringing important information to people throughout our vast and diverse state. That train is long gone, but the Cooperative Extension Service endures as the vehicle that delivers research-based information to New Mexicans, improving their quality of life.
A century ago, Extension agents reached communities by train. Today, Extension delivers practical, research-based knowledge through an array of programs and media to hundreds of thousands of New Mexicans. (NMSU Library Archives photo)
Thanks to the Cooperative Extension Service, the discoveries of NMSU faculty reach about a third of New Mexico's nearly 2 million residents through non-formal education programs in each of the state's 33 counties. We're all about outreach and engagement. We listen to the communities we serve. We conduct programs aimed at the following issues, which you can learn more about in this resource.
