Agriculture & Food
Extension programs advance innovative and sustainable agricultural methods to help expand production of a safe and abundant local food supply. We work with farmers from urban and rural areas, on land and sea.
We use interdisciplinary approaches to enhance health and well-being locally, nationally, and globally. Our work strives to prevent disease in humans, animals, and the environment.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Justice
We are committed to actively fostering inclusion and equity founded on a deep respect for the experiences, challenges, and realities of individuals.
We are developing environmentally aware citizens that participate in sustainable, healthy lifestyles, and improving our landscapes statewide in collaboration with partners, stakeholders, and community members.
We engage and educate residents in climate adaptation. Extension programs promote resilient and well-adapted coastal Connecticut communities and economies.

The partnership with UConn Extension has made the tribe stronger. It's refocused our attention towards farming and healthier eating ... We've been able to work with them to ensure that some of our traditional protocols and farming techniques have been cornerstone to this project."
