Building Better Communities through Education, Research and Community Outreach.
Extension services seek to empower members of the LCO and surrounding communities through embracing the traditional values and language of the Anishinaabe people.
The values of our traditions are the fundamental basis of our methods in conducting research and community education. Extension strives to build collaborative partnerships to address various community needs while promoting leadership in all program initiatives.
* Personal integrity
* Veneration of our Elders and our Youth
* Respect for all those here with us, those here before us, and those yet to come
* Honor the traditions of the Ojibwe
* Preserve and Care for our Natural Resources
The Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College Extension Department is made up of three programs. The Increased Capacity Program, the Youth Development Program, and the Water Quality Program. We also partner with the Wisconsin Nutrition Education Program.
Extension is funded be grants from the USDA Extension Program. We are building better communities through research, education and community outreach.
