Extension by the Numbers

Extension is a part of UConn’s College of Agriculture, Health, and Natural Resources (CAHNR). We have over 100 years of experience strengthening communities in Connecticut and beyond. Our educational specialists are ready to work with you and your community.

Extension programs cover the full spectrum of topics aligned to the CAHNR strategic initiatives:

  • Ensuring a vibrant and sustainable agricultural industry and food supply
  • Enhancing health and well-being locally, nationally, and globally
  • Advancing adaptation and resilience in a changing climate
  • Designing sustainable landscapes across urban-rural interfaces

Programs delivered by Extension reach individuals, communities, and businesses in each of the 169 municipalities across the state (see map below). The “by the Numbers 2019” (below) highlights some of our key impacts from these initiatives.
