Celebrating 100 Years of Extension’s
Service to West Virginia

Smith-Lever is 100!

Extension 100 logo Not every organization can claim to have been created by an act of Congress. The year was 1914, and the United States Congress passed the Smith-Lever Act, creating a unique educational system called the National Cooperative Extension Service.

Indeed, our faculty agents, specialists, and staff are the “extension” of the University, and our WVU Extension county offices are the front door to the university in all 55 West Virginia counties.
