About Cooperative Extension
Cooperative Extension was founded in 1914 by the federal Smith-Lever Act. It’s a unique partnership between the University of Georgia, county governments and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Cooperative Extension System of land-grant universities, including Fort Valley State University.
Today, UGA Extension serves more than 2.6 million Georgians annually through a network of specialists, agents and staff by providing unbiased, research-based information driven by local needs and clientele input. From publications to in-person workshops and events, Extension is ready to meet the needs of the state and its communities.
