Each day, Cornell Cooperative Extension turns offices and schools, homes and apartment houses, libraries and county parks into extensions of the Cornell campus. We really do bring the university to you.

Extension’s Power is People

Since 1914, Cooperative Extension has responded to the needs of New Yorkers.

Our priorities are determined by people like you. Our volunteer board of directors and program advisory committees represent a diverse group of individuals who represent all of Warren County’s 12 municipalities and villages.

The result is a broad spectrum of educational programs for the people of Warren County.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Warren County is a subordinate governmental agency with an educational mission that operates under a form of organization and administration approved by Cornell University as agent for the State of New York. It is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The association is part of the national cooperative extension system, an educational partnership between County, State, and Federal governments. As New York’s land grant university Cornell administers the system in this state. Each Cornell Cooperative Extension association is an independent employer that is governed by an elected Board of Directors with general oversight from Cornell. All associations work to meet the needs of the counties in which they are located as well as state and national goals.
