Cooperative Extension

May 10, 2013 admin

The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences is committed to the application of knowledge to solve the needs of society.  One of the most successful models for scientific discovery to be transferred to the end user is through the continuum between campus-based faculty and cooperative extension specialists, and county-based cooperative extension advisors. 

As a land-grant institution the mandate of Cooperative Extension is tied to the welfare, development, and protection of California agriculture, natural resources, and people.  Cooperative Extension was established in 1914 as a partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and land-grant institutions.  Today University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) has farm, 4-H, and nutrition, family and consumer sciences advisors based in more than 50 county offices through California. In addition, Cooperative Extension specialists are headquartered at UC Davis, UC Berkeley, and UC Riverside where they conduct cutting-edge research that complements their extension activities.
