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 individuals, both young and old, and foster the development of strong, stable communities.

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