Welcome to the University of Wisconsin – Extension
Cooperative Extension International Activities Resource Center
When people from different cultures and countries get together for social, educational and research purposes, the participants benefit and the world becomes a better place.
We intend to serve as a catalyst providing information, incentives and networking opportunities promoting international activities and understanding.
40 UWEX faculty/staff have worked overseas in the past 5 years. There are many international scholarship opportunities for county, area and state educators. We need to develop networks, identify skills or knowledge that can be taught, and competencies needed to succeed.
There are also many benefits to educators that make them a better extension educator that strengthens our entire organization such as: new skills and new knowledge of processes, policies, content, techniques. Internationalizing Extension benefits both learners and partners – which is the purpose of our organization.
