COVID-19 Operational Statement
WSU is a state agency and institution of higher education, receiving over $500m per biennium in the state operating budget. WSU also receives a significant percentage of its funding from the federal government through competitive grants, student financial aid, and other sources, including to Extension. Washington State is under a Governor’s Directive to “Stay Home [and] Stay Healthy”, using recommendations from the CDC. WSU’s Incident Command and President have reiterated those directives for WSU. It is not possible for Extension to follow those mandates in an open office environment, so Extension offices are expected and legally required to remain closed to the public, with business being conducted at a distance (other than essential business that must be conducted on site) until the Governor orders otherwise.
Connecting Communities, Resources, and Knowledge
WSU Clark County Extension programs engage people, organizations and communities to advance knowledge, economic well-being, and quality of life by fostering inquiry, learning, and the application of research. Extension has connected the people and communities of Clark County with the knowledge base of Washington State University since 1917.

Land Grant Universities – Connecting You to Reliable, Practical Knowledge
The two land-grant universities in Washington include: Washington State University (WSU) and the Northwest Indian College in Bellingham.
Established by Congress in the 1800s, the land-grant system, through Extension Services, provides better access to the knowledge base of WSU and other land-grant universities nation-wide. The Smith-Lever Act of 1914 established the nationwide Cooperative Extension Service as part of the land-grant system. WSU Extension is a three-way partnership between USDA, Washington State University, and local county governments. Extension started in Clark county on November 1, 1917.
