Mission

Our mission is to extend lifelong learning to Georgia citizens through unbiased, research-based education in agriculture, the environment, communities, youth and families.

With groundbreaking, transformative research happening not only within the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES), but across the University of Georgia, our ability to disseminate that information is of the greatest importance. For over 100 years, UGA Cooperative Extension has provided free, reliable, science-backed resources based on the latest scientific research.
