About OSU Extension Community Development

OSU Extension Community Development professionals enhance communities and neighborhoods by partnering with:

  • Businesses, organizations, associations, and committees 
  • Current and emerging community leaders
  • Elected and appointed officials

Through these partnerships we apply cutting-edge research, knowledge, and innovations to help improve local businesses and communities.The national Extension network enables us to share perspectives with residents and leaders regarding local development issues, increase the knowledge base for individual and community decisions, develop skills necessary to help these partners achieve their individual and community goals, and help create a more inclusive decision-making environment.
