UT Extension

UT Extension provides a gateway to the University of Tennessee as the outreach unit of the Institute of Agriculture.  Follow any road in Tennessee and you’ll find people whose lives have been influenced by at least one of our program areas. 

  • Family and Consumer Sciences – addressing important issues facing Tennesseans as they cope with social, economic and technological changes;
  • Agriculture, Natural Resources & Community Economic Development – helping constituents in the areas of sustainable agriculture, rural development, bioenergy and precision agriculture;
  • 4-H youth development – bringing tomorrow’s world to today’s youth.

UT Extension serves as a two-way link between Tennesseans, both urban and rural, and university specialists, scientists, and researchers. As we seek to use our abilities and expertise to increase Tennessee’s economic prosperity, improve environmental sustainability, and to enhance well-being in rural, urban and suburban communities throughout the state, we need your assistance.  Thank you for considering an investment today to help us continue advancing Tennessee.

With warm regards,
