Land Grant Mission

Family and Consumer Sciences Extension
Family and Consumer Sciences Extension includes a network of faculty, specialists, associates and support staff with statewide appointments.  Many of these professionals are housed on the campus of the University of Kentucky.  In addition, each county Extension office in Kentucky is staffed by one or more Extension Agents for Family and Consumer Sciences.

Departmental Outreach
Many reseach and teaching faculty in the academic departments of the School of Human Environmental Sciences are also engaged in outreach work.  To learn more about these projects and programs, click the links below to access the departmental outreach and Extension information.
