People in Your Community…Knowledge at Your Doorstep
Each WVU Extension Office can provide the public with information on many topics from many resources. The Morgan County Extension Office faculty and staff provide assistance and educational programs in a number of areas. Visit the areas in the navigation bar to find out more, or to find needed forms and information for local programs.
The mission of the West Virginia University (WVU) Extension Service (ES) is to form learning partnerships with the people of West Virginia to enable them to improve their lives and communities. To these partnerships, we bring useful research- and experience-based knowledge that facilitates critical thinking and skill development.
Where Is WVU-ES?
Through its Extension Service, WVU provides a “mini campus” in each of the state’s 55 counties. The work at these locations addresses a wide variety of community issues via a nontraditional mix of learners, faculty, staff and volunteers. Part of an educational network of 105 land-grant universities, WVU-ES takes the helping hand of West Virginia University directly to thousands of West Virginians in communities scattered across the state. Extension’s central administrative office is on WVU’s downtown campus in Morgantown.
How Does Extension Work?
Drawing on the strengths of WVU’s many academic disciplines, extension educators target communities’ social, economic, environmental and technical problems. Some extension educators work out of buildings on WVU’s traditional campuses, such as those located in Morgantown. But many extension personnel work out of offices in WVU Extension’s county settings, such as those generally located in or near each county’s governmental seat. Working daily with local residents, extension personnel find their lives often intertwine with the issues that confront their local communities. They are committed to helping people find answers that work. As they solve problems along with local citizens—individually and in groups—Extension personnel and staff translate WVU’s research and knowledge into action. More about the Extension Service...
