Office of Cooperative Extension
The Southern University Cooperative Extension Program is the outreach arm of Southern University Ag Center. The Cooperative Extension Program has a standing reputation of "Linking Citizens of Louisiana with Opportunities for Success" and building lasting partnerships and programs that help solve problems of the citizens of Louisiana who have limited social and economic resources.
Our committed field agents provide leadership and expertise in many areas and are dedicated to improving our access to positive opportunities through outreach education. The Cooperative Extension Program accomplishes its objectives by conducting outreach and educational programs that positively impact their targeted clientele.
Thousands of Louisiana citizens are reached through the combined efforts of professionals, paraprofessional and volunteers in designated parishes throughout the state. The foundation of the Cooperative Extension Program is community-based and family centered and provides a network of people working together to help other people.We offer educational programs and resources on agriculture and natural resources, economic and community development, youth development, family and human development, diet, nutrition and health education. Southern University Ag Center reaches people through meetings, workshops, conferences, publications, electronic communication, distance learning and mass media.
