Feeding the world. Protecting the planet.

On January 12, 1869, the Board of Trustees of the University of Delaware signed an agreement to become a land-grant college. This designation initiated a legacy of agricultural and ecological research. For 150 years, our faculty have conducted groundbreaking research that shaped the past (and future) of our food and our planet. Cooperative Extension brought these cutting-edge discoveries to the public — putting knowledge into practice. And our alumni became successful growers, agribusiness leaders, groundbreaking scientists, policy makers and world changers.

With record numbers in student enrollment, interest in studying agriculture and natural resources is high as we teach and prepare the next generation of students for careers that matter and opportunities to make a difference in the world.
