Extending education to the public
Land Grant Institution
In 1869, the University of Delaware (UD) College of Agriculture and Natural Resources was established as the state’s land-grant university with a mission consisting of three elements: teaching, research and “extension”. Cooperative Extension fulfills the third part of this mission: bringing knowledge to the people of Delaware. Today, we offer university knowledge, research and resources — just for you!
College graduates with expertise in food, agriculture, renewable natural resources and the environment are essential to our ability to address the U.S. priorities of food security, sustainable energy and environmental quality.
