Learning Heritage

In 1914, Congress established the Cooperative Extension Service to deliver information from land-grant colleges and universities to all Americans, particularly those who lacked access to formal education. The "College on Wheels" carried UGA Faculty and exhibits of interest across the state from 1908 through 1917. Although agriculture and society have changed dramatically during the past 90 years, the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension continues to fulfill its basic mission.
