The Council for Agricultural Research, Extension, and Teaching (CARET) is a national grassroots organization created in 1982 by A۰P۰L۰U's Division of Agriculture. CARET is composed of representatives from the 50 states, the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia. CARET's mission is to advocate for greater national support and understanding of the land-grant university system's food and agricultural research, extension, and teaching programs that enhance the quality of life for all people. CARET also works with national agricultural organizations to tell agriculture's "story." The brochure describing CARET can be found here, and an explanation of CARET's new logo can be found here.
