As part of our commitment to experienced-based education, we are transforming the George H. Cook Campus into a living lab. Through courses and student clubs, we are re-envisioning various sites on campus as places to experiment and experience green infrastructure, habitat creation, and food production. To find out more, visit our Living Labs website.

In addition to these sites, our school has strong linkages with the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, which has offices and research sites across the state.
