Penny Tank - Waupaca County UW-Extension Department Head


The UW-Extension is present in each Wisconsin County. There are six UW-Extension Educators in our Waupaca County Office. UW- Extension programs are offered by webinar, wisline, radio, newspaper, newsletter, publications, one-on-one consultation, classes, and workshops that address local educational and community needs. Faculty and staff support the following areas: 4-H Youth Development; Community, Natural Resources and Economic Development; Family Living and WNEP; and Agriculture and Natural Resources. These educators teach classes and provide leadership in informal settings through advising, educating, training and facilitating.

Our purpose to which we commit … we teach, learn, lead and serve, connecting people with the University of Wisconsin, and engaging with them in transforming lives and communities - commonly known as the " Wisconsin Idea".
