What is CE?

One of the most effective methods for transferring scientific discoveries from the laboratory to the public has been through the Cooperative Extension Service.

Cooperative extension specialists are headquartered at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, and UC Riverside, where they conduct research and coordinate public outreach activities. As a land-grant institution, the Cooperative Extension mandate is tied to the welfare, development, and protection of California agriculture, natural resources, and people.

The College has cooperative extension specialists in our three departments to meet specific research and educational needs in areas ranging from biological control to biotechnology.
