Since 1869, UD Cooperative Extension has brought university knowledge and resources to the people of Delaware — and despite the upset of COVID-19 to our daily lives, this commitment continues. You have questions. We have expert answers.

We are, however, adjusting our delivery of programs and services in order to protect the health and safety of our families, friends and community.

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.
