Our mission is to improve education, health and economic well-being for North Carolina citizens.

As a technical and content support system for NC Cooperative Extension, our faculty and staff actively develop, deliver and evaluate extension-based outreach and engagement programs, helping families gain new skills and knowledge in order to improve their overall well-being.

Our educational programs address a wide spectrum of individual and family needs. Whether focused on health, nutrition and food safety or parenting, aging and human development, our outreach sustains our communities.
