The Cumberland County office of Virginia Cooperative Extension is your local connection to Virginia's land-grant universities, Virginia Tech and Virginia State University.  Through educational programs based on research and developed with input from local stakeholders, we help the people of Cumberland County improve their lives. We provide education through programs in Agriculture and Natural Resources, Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H Youth Development and Community Viability.  

The Cumberland Extension Office completes a Situation Analysis every 5 years. A Situation Analysis assists us in discovering the issues that residents and stakeholders within Cumberland feel are most important. While educational programs offered through Extension always seek to address a local need, over time those needs change or new ones emerge.

This Community Survey will help Extension understand what is important to the residents of Cumberland County. Your feedback is very important.  Please take a couple of minutes to share your opinions.  The results of this survey will help shape Virginia Cooperative Extension educational programs in Cumberland County.  The survey is completely anonymous.

Black Minds Matter

Please join us for this free, multi-week, public course by Dr. Luke Wood, Dean's Distinguished Professor of Education, San Diego State University at the Library Conference room beginning Tuesday, October 9, 2018, from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. 

This course is designed to raise the national consciousness about issues facing black boys and men in education.  The course will intentionally draw linkages between the pervasive undervaluing and criminalization of Black boys and men in society and illustrate how those same patterns are evident in school, college, and university settings.
