International Extension


The continuing integration of global economies and societies affects nearly every part of our lives​, education, communities, business, government. For Purdue Extension, this means responding proactively to the global forces that are shaping Indiana so that we remain effective in serving our local clientele and addressing local needs.

  • Initiating new opportunities to enhance the ability of Extension educators to provide improved service and internationally-focused educational programming to all Indiana residents.
  • Developing relationships with partnering institutions for collaboration on extension-based projects and programs.
  • Increasing exposure for Indiana residents to international experiences, new cultures and to the international interconnectedness that is driven by the convergence of global economies and societies.
  • Identifying opportunities in cooperation with Indiana state government to better position Indiana farmers and businesses to compete in the global marketplace.
