UD Cooperative Extension converts 100 programs online for Delaware residents
Welcome to UD Cooperative Extension
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! You have questions. We have expert answers.
From nutrition classes and Master Naturalist courses to 4-H youth clubs and programs that support local agriculture — UD Cooperative Extension has something for everyone.
