Brand identity means much more than a logo. A brand is the sum of who we are and all that we do — from delivering research-based solutions and a stellar customer experience to serving as a trusted partner and enhancing the quality of life for North Carolinians.

EVERYONE WHO’S PART OF EXTENSION PLAYS A CRITICAL ROLE IN BUILDING OUR BRAND IDENTITY AND INTEGRITY.

Campus and County Branding Guidelines

North Carolina is home to two land-grant institutions, NC State University and N.C. A&T State University. Each school operates individual Extension units — NC State Extension and Cooperative Extension at N.C. A&T — which provide programming both independently and as a strategic partnership called N.C. Cooperative Extension.
