Celebrating 100 Years of Extension!

Extension 100th Anniversary logoJoin us on April 17 as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Florida Extension!

The Cooperative Extension System was established by the Smith-Lever Act of 1914, and allows us all to benefit from the research and education of each state’s land-grant universities. In Florida, Extension has helped millions by tapping the latest information from the research engines of the University of Florida and Florida A&M University and converting it into practical knowledge we use every day.

On April 17, we’ll celebrate 100 years of Extension on UF’s Plaza of the Americas with guest speakers, food fresh from Florida, activities and displays showing today’s Extension programs and information about how you can find a career helping people find solutions for the next 100 years.

TIME: 11 am – 2 pm
LOCATION: UF Plaza of the Americas, Gainesville FL
