The Office of Urban Extension and Engagement
The Office's primary purpose is to raise the visibility of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) and Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) expertise and resources available to address issues affecting urban residents and their communities. These objectives will be advanced through the Office's efforts to coordinate and facilitate programming to address food security, individual and community health, resource stewardship, urban agriculture and food chains, environmental planning and design, and other concerns facing our state's urban communities.
Recent projects and programs highlighted on this website represent just some of the ways in which we engage and collaborate for a healthy, equitable and resilient future in New Jersey.
