What is Family and Consumer Sciences?

What our name means:

Family is the focus of our work. We provide non-formal education to family members or those persons who teach and support families. We assist community members, agencies, businesses, and other organizations in understanding how their practices and policies affect families.

Consumer refers to the important decision-making role of choosing products and services that support the needs and values of the family. Decisions are made with information from a variety of sources, one of which is the Cooperative Extension Service.

Sciences reflects the fact that our profession uses the physical, social, and behavioral sciences to provide non-formal education in support of families.

Through our programs, classes, publications, newsletters, columns, and much more, our agents provide you Knowledge for Life.
