Since 1905, when J. A. Evans was appointed state agent for Arkansas and Louisiana, some form of Extension educational work has occurred in Arkansas.
The Cooperative Extension Service is part of the University of Arkansas' Division of Agriculture. With offices in all 75 counties, our faculty and staff provide educational programs and research-based information to the people of Arkansas. From agricultural programs to family financial management to youth education, we offer educational programs that have immediate and practical applications.
The University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service is very proud to have faculty in every county of the state who live and work with the citizens they serve. Extension educational programs touch all segments of our society: youth, families, community and, yes, farmers.
The Extension faculty work hard to meet the needs of the people they serve, leaving nothing undone that might contribute toward success.
Our classrooms are found in open fields or on the tailgate of a pickup. You will find us among Arkansas' 33 million acres of crops, livestock and natural resources. You will find us in conference centers and public schools, community centers and courthouses, in the classroom and in the lab. That is why "Arkansas is Our Campus."
If you have a need to stop by your Hempsetead County office, please do so. Our goal is to provide non-formal education to all Arkansans. Arkansas is truly our campus.
