Cooperative Extension Program


Florida A&M University and Cooperative Extension are closely monitoring the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The University remains open for business  as we carefully observe federal and state safety and health protocols.

Director’s Message:

FAMU Cooperative Extension will remain operational in effort to serve the citizens of Florida.  Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic and following the guidelines set forth by the University, faculty and staff will largely operate remotely until further notice.  All in-person events and gatherings, workshops, demonstrations, conferences and field days have been cancelled.  FAMU has also prohibited all non-essential university travel until further notice in compliance with state orders.


We see this as an opportunity to make use of alternative delivery of information and education, i.e. through online learning, Zoom meetings, conference calls, social media and other electronic delivery of information.  We will monitor phone calls and emails and respond to any correspondence as quickly as possible. If assistance is needed, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at or by calling and leaving a detailed message at (850) 599-3546. We also encourage you to visit us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram 


The response to COVID-19 in Florida is rapidly evolving, and the current guidelines may be subject to change. The health and safety of our faculty, staff, students and the community are of the utmost importance during this time. We are taking every measure to protect your safety while assuring that FAMU Cooperative Extension continues to be of service to the people of Florida.  We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.


Stay safe and take care,

Vonda Richardson
