UT Extension provides a gateway to the University of Tennessee as the outreach and engagement unit of the Institute of Agriculture. Follow any road in Tennessee and you’ll find people whose lives have been influenced by our programs.
- Family and Consumer Sciences – addressing important issues facing Tennesseans such as family finances, healthy living, food and nutrition, workforce development, farmer stress, and other public health issues;
- Agriculture, Natural Resources & Community Economic Development – helping constituents in the areas of sustainable agriculture, rural community and economic development, natural resource management, the outdoor economy, value-added agriculture, and urban agriculture;
- 4-H and other youth development programs – bringing tomorrow’s world to today’s youth through programs that are based on the science of positive youth development.
UT Extension serves as a two-way link between Tennesseans, both urban and rural, and university agents, specialists, scientists, and researchers. As we seek to use our abilities and expertise to increase Tennessee’s economic prosperity, improve sustainability, help our communities thrive, and to enhance well-being in rural, urban and suburban communities throughout the state, we need your assistance. Thank you for considering an investment today to help us continue advancing Tennessee through the incredible Extension mission.
