Abstract

Land grant universities have served society by applying knowledge to problems of agriculture, industry, and community living through the various disciplines of science, technology, and the liberal arts for over one hundred years. Extension services provided land grant universities an outreach into the communities for informal education and technical assistance.

This study presents an organizational model for an Interstate Metropolitan Extension Service Authority (IMESA) for the Washington, D.C. area. An IMESA could help to provide economies of scale for existing resources. It could provide access to more and new resources only available to an areawide entity, Improved informal education programs and technical assistance-and thereby maximized utilization of present and future extension services in the District of Columbia and nearby Maryland and Virginla--could result.
