About Us

Our mission is to help the diverse population of Atlantic County adapt to a rapidly changing society and to improve their lives. We focus on issues and needs related to:

  • family and economic well-being
  • agriculture, the environment, and natural resource management
  • youth development

As an integral part of the statewide Rutgers Cooperative Extension program, School of Environmental Biological Sciences (SEBS), the New Jersey Agriculture Experiment Station, and Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, we provide practical education for all people without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital or family status.

Professionals stationed at the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Atlantic County office are Rutgers University faculty, as well as program associates who assist faculty in meeting local needs. We are an outreach arm of Rutgers University - supported by specialists located on the Cook College campus, and dedicated to providing educational opportunities that use non-biased, science-based knowledge.

We invite you to learn about the many educational opportunities Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Atlantic County offers. Knowledge is power to make informed decisions about our lives, our livelihood, and our environment.
