Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service
Education Cooperative State Research, and Extension Service, agency within the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, created (1995) as a result of the reorganization act passed (1994) by Congress. The agency combined the former Cooperative State Research Service, which focused on research and higher education, and the Cooperative Extension Service, which focused on education and outreach. The service works with land-grant colleges and universities, agricultural experiment stations, schools of forestry, colleges of agriculture and veterinary medicine, and other institutions to increase and provide access to knowledge in the food and agricultural sciences and related areas. The service also sponsors Four-H for young people throughout the country.
