What Is UGA Extension?
UGA Extension is a county, state and federal funded organization supported by specialists in the University of Georgia's College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the College of Family and Consumer Sciences.
History of Extension
In 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill Act, which established Land Grant Colleges throughout the nation. Each land grant institution would have a College of Agriculture that must teach classes, serve the public and perform research. In 1914, Senator Hoke Smith from Georgia and Representative Ashbury Lever from South Carolina presented the Smith –Lever Act, which established the Cooperative Extension Service. The Act was passed in Congress and signed into law by the President. This legislature required that the Cooperative Extension Service, as the service arm of the land grant institutions in each state, provide information in agriculture & natural resources, family & consumer sciences, and 4-H & youth development.
Scope of Extension
Did you know that every county in Georgia has an Extension service, providing unbiased, research-based education in agriculture, the environment, communities, youth and families?
