We inform programming and foster partnerships that advance relationship and marriage education.
We envision a nation-wide outreach through Extension Specialists and Educators in partnership with agencies and organizations at the national, state, and community levels that supports individuals and couples preparing for, developing and enriching healthy relationships and healthy marriages.
Our mission is to provide research-based resources and promote partnerships to advance the knowledge and practice in relationship and marriage education.
There is mounting research evidence that trends of increasing marital and family instability are negatively impacting children, adults, families, and communities.
Extension programming is grounded in theory, research, and best practices that build on individual strengths, respect diversity, and promote health and safety in couple relationships.
