Commitment to Community

University of Missouri Extension has been committed to serving the people of Missouri for more than 100 years. We’re still helping in some of the same important ways we did from the beginning, but we’ve grown over the years to serve the changing needs of people across this state.

More than 1.3 million Missourians in every county take part in extension programs each year, including 230,000 young people who participated in programs administered by 4-H alone. The MU Extension website draws more than 2.8 million unique visitors. Our conferences, summits, workshops, courses and publications — in person and online — offer information that people, neighbors, businesses and communities in every corner of the state can use to become stronger and better at what they do.

Continuing feedback from local, regional and state council representatives and other key stakeholders underscores our commitment to connect you to the best practical, actionable research our land-grant university can provide.

Together, we will strengthen our state and communities as we build a vibrant future for the next 100 years.
