Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station’s network of faculty members in Blacksburg represents three colleges — the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the College of Natural Resources and Environment, and the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine. The 11 Agricultural Research and Extension Centers located across the state support basic and applied research on agricultural, environmental, natural resources, and community issues related to the future needs of Virginia, the nation, and the world.
Virginia Cooperative Extension leads the engagement mission of Virginia Tech and Virginia State University — the commonwealth’s land-grant universities. By building local relationships and collaborative partnerships, Extension provides practical education that people can trust to help individuals, businesses, and communities solve problems, develop skills, and build better futures.
A local presence
Extension offers resources in 107 offices, located in every county and 12 cities across Virginia. It is a cooperative effort among local, state, and federal governments in partnership with tens of thousands of citizens who — through their local Extension Leadership Councils — help design, implement, and evaluate our needs-driven programs.
