Cooperative Extension plays a unique role by bringing the University of Arizona to both urban and rural Maricopa County. Maricopa County is home to almost four million people, each with unique needs. Extension provides practical information and education to help people make their lives better. Outreach efforts translate relevant University of Arizona research into effective practices people can put to immediate use in their homes and businesses. A copy of our 2015 Annual Report can be found here and to read our latest newsletter click here.

Our Advisory Board members, appointed by our County Supervisors, help support and direct our programs. The Board advises the County Extension Director and the Extension faculty on community needs to make science useful for people in their everyday lives. A list of our Board can be found here.
