UAF Cooperative Extension Service

CES Banner

As the state's gateway to its university system, Extension provides a link between Alaska's diverse people and communities by interpreting and extending relevant university, research-based knowledge in an understandable and usable form to the public.

Created in 1930 as a department within the Alaska Agricultural College and School of Mines, our relationship with the university continues today within the Office of the Provost. UAF's public service and community engagement role is filled in part by Extension educators, faculty and staff located in Anchorage, Bethel, Delta Junction, Dillingham, Fairbanks, Juneau, Kodiak, Nome, Palmer, Sitka, Soldotna and affiliate offices with the Tanana Chiefs Conference and Eielson Air Force Base.
