The Community, Natural Resources & Economic Development (CNRED) is a program area within University of Wisconsin-Extension. County-based CNRED Educators partners with citizens county-wide, as well as county, state, federal, and tribal government administrators and public officials; community and civic organizations/public agencies and volunteers; business/entrepreneurs; and industry.

Backed by University of Wisconsin research, the Milwaukee County CNRED Educator is an UW faculty member, jointly supported by Milwaukee County government. CNRED Educators do not program unless our programs are in partnership with Milwaukee County citizens, and based on Milwaukee County community-identified goals and priorities.

CNRED educational programs are unique by training citizens over time to use and apply research, evidence, and data to transform their community.
