University of Maryland Extension




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 office, 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.


The University of Maryland Extension if projected to  return to work at the earliest  Aug. 31, visitors will not be allowed in the building until after September 8th . There will be no in-person meetings or events at this time. Staff continue to telework but are available via email. 

We will continue to keep you updated.
