College of Agriculture, Food and Environment and

Kentucky Cooperative Extension


Who We Are

The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment was founded as – and remains – a land-grant institution, offering access to knowledge and learning to enhance the lives of Kentuckians. The College is fundamentally interdisciplinary; we apply the biological, physical, and social sciences to challenges in agricultural, food and environmental systems. Our work encompasses farms and forests, food and fiber, families and communities.

The College holds a unique position as the home of the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station and the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service. Our teaching, research, and extension programs are part of a national system that maintains a statewide presence and links local, state and global issues.

As full partners in the University of Kentucky and in every Kentucky county we:

  • Facilitate lifelong learning, informed by scholarship and research
  • Expand knowledge through creative research and discovery
  • Serve Kentuckians by sharing and applying knowledge

The College shall honor, sustain and advance the land-grant heritage and mission.
