About Us

University of Maryland Extension (UME) is a statewide non-formal education system funded by federal, state, and local governments within the University of Maryland – College Park and the University of Maryland – Eastern Shore. Our mission is to support Maryland's agricultural industry; protect its valuable natural resources; enhance the well-being of families and all individuals, both young and old; and foster the development of strong, stable communities.

The Prince George’s County office, partially supported by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, serves the community from the main office in Clinton and the Center for Educational Partnership in Riverdale.
