A. For the purposes of this section:

"Cooperative extension service" means the function traditionally associated with the term "extension" that traditionally focuses on agriculture, including horticulture and silviculture, agribusiness, home economics, community resource development, and 4-H Clubs.

"Extension" means the joint federal, state, and local program designed to aid the transfer of information and research capabilities of land-grant universities to citizens.

B. As provided in Article 2 (§ 23.1-2608 et seq.) of Chapter 26 and subject to the federally required plan, the Cooperative Extension Service Program within the University, (the Program) is recognized. The University may accept grants, gifts, or donations for the Program from the local governing bodies of the Commonwealth, other public or private agencies, and individual donors. The Service shall be operated cooperatively by Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and the University, with agreed-upon areas of program and service emphasis as set forth in the unified plan submitted by the two institutions to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The University shall file such reports on the activities of the Program as may be required by law or requested by the Governor, and the two institutions shall file such reports on the unified plan as may be required by law or requested by the Governor.
