URI Outreach Center

Cooperative Extension


The URI Outreach Center provides a window to the College of the Environment and Life Sciences and Cooperative Extension through which citizens, communities, government agencies and businesses can access research-generated knowledge and obtain assistance to address a broad range of socioeconomic issues. We offer a variety of programs and services through the Center and also field requests for assistance from College and Cooperative Extension experts.

It is our belief that well-informed citizens possess the ability to solve the environmental, economic and social challenges of our state and world. Our value of lifelong learning, community engagement and protecting the natural environment is reflected in all of the Center's programs and services.

Our current focus areas include horticulture, urban agriculture and energy, however, we strive to remain programmatically flexible and responsive to changes in stakeholder demand.
