Reaching Out Into the World: A History of Extension at the University of Saskatchewan, 1910 to 2007
Through narrative, photographs, and archival material, Reaching Out into the World celebrates the contribution of Extension work to the province of Saskatchewan during the University of Saskatchewan’s first century.
Since 1910, extension programming at the University of Saskatchewan has touched the lives of thousands of people in the province. In the early years, Extension staff worked with Agricultural Societies, Homemakers’ Clubs, and youth programs to provide information and educational opportunities to people across Saskatchewan. This work focused on agriculture and home economics, and it had a significant impact on the social and economic fabric of rural Saskatchewan.
In the mid-1900s, Saskatchewan changed dramatically, with more people living in cities and fewer people earning a living from farming. In response to such change, extension programming at the University of Saskatchewan took on new initiatives, including vocational training programs, citizenship programs, and continuing professional education.
In recent decades, post-secondary education and credentials have become fundamental to earning a living for many people in Saskatchewan. In this context, the University of Saskatchewan focused its extension programming on providing degree-credit classes to people at a distance from Saskatoon, and on providing continuing education opportunities that met citizens’ professional development needs and personal interests.
Scott McLean’s account of the origins of extension and how it evolved in response to changing social and economic conditions in the province is an important contribution to understanding a remarkable century in Saskatchewan’s history.
