From the mountains to the coast, NC State Extension makes North Carolina better.
We Create Prosperity
What separates NC State from other schools? The same thing that connects it to every corner of North Carolina: NC State Extension. We extend knowledge from our CALS faculty to farmers, families and citizens in every N.C. county. They don’t just conduct groundbreaking research; our faculty deliver solutions directly into the hands of North Carolinians.
We make North Carolina better through programs and partnerships focused on feeding our future, enriching our youth, improving our health, and strengthening our communities.
