Virginia Cooperative Extension brings research-based knowledge and resources from Virginia's land-grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University, to the people of the commonwealth to help them improve their lives.

At Virginia State University, Extension specialists specifically focus on providing educational programs and tools, expert advice and a wealth of dependable answers to enrich the lives, the land and the economy of Virginia’s limited-resource individuals, families and communities.

Extension is part of the National Institute for Food and Agriculture, an agency of the United States Department of Agriculture, and is further supported through a cooperation among local, state and federal governments in partnership with tens of thousands of citizens, who, through local Extension Leadership Councils, help design, implement, and evaluate our needs-driven programs.

Our program areas include Agriculture & Natural ResourcesAquacultureFamily & Consumer Sciences and 4-H Youth Development.
