University of Maryland Extension

University of Maryland Extension (UME) is a statewide, informal education system within the College of Agriculture & Natural Resources and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. UME educational programs and problem-solving assistance are available to citizens and are based on the research and experience of land-grant universities such as the University of Maryland, College Park. In Maryland, UME employs approximately 200 faculty and approximately 200 support staff and contractual employees located at the University of Maryland, College Park, University of Maryland Eastern Shore, 23 counties, Baltimore City, and four research & education centers. Many UME faculty members located on the College Park campus have joint appointments with the Maryland Agriculture Experiment Station and Academic programs. These joint appointments promote the exchange of knowledge among the college's three units. In addition to its faculty and staff, UME is supported by trained volunteers and citizen-based advisory committees. Extension programs focus primarily on agriculture, the environment, nutrition and health, and youth and family development.
