About The Cooperative Extension Program


The Cooperative Extension Program is the outreach arm of the College of Agriculture and Food Sciences (CAFS) at Florida A&M University (FAMU). Through the history of FAMU, countless residents in Florida have been enriched through the positive impact of significant information shared by specialists and agents through the Cooperative Extension Program. Reaching farmers, rural and urban families, elderly, youth, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and underserved communities continues to be a rich tradition of the FAMU Cooperative Extension Program.

The FAMU Cooperative Extension Program provides research-based educational information and direct technical assistance to improve the quality of life for limited resource citizens throughout Florida. As a unit of the Florida Cooperative Extension Service, the program is responsible for coordinating activities and events of mutual benefit with the University of Florida/Institute of Food and Agriculture Sciences (IFAS).
