Extension at The University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine

Extension was authorized by the passage of the Smith-Lever Act in 1914. The federal law established the Cooperative Extension Service to be administered through each state’s land-grant university. 

Our Vision: To be the preeminent model for land grant university extension and outreach in the 21st century.

Our Mission: To facilitate the engineering of comprehensive solutions to improve animal, human, and ecosystem health, and the production of a safe food supply by collecting, organizing, synthesizing, and delivering information and resources to the profession, the people of Illinois, the United States, and across the globe.
