Extension programs articulate the social relevance and conscience of the Isabela State University as a facilitator of countryside development. To be more functional and more relevant, extension services primarily aimed at reaching out to the poorest local government units and rural communities and help them build up their capabilities to become self-reliant and empowered. Moreover, the University is envisioned to develop effective extension modalities and strategies with great focus on social mobilization and development of viable S & T and rural-based enterprises.

The University extension program thrust has been implemented in consonance with DA-AFMA of1997, CHEDs NHERA, PCARRD’s Technology Management Promotion and Commercialization Enhancement Program and NEDA Regional Extension Agenda. Guided by the abovementioned programs, ISU has pursued three-pronged umbrella programs as follows: a) Adopt A Barangay Volunteerism Program; b) LGU Extension Capability Strengthening Program; and c) Gender and Development.
