Cooperative Media Group

Welcome to the Cooperative Media Group’s website.

Our primary mission is to employ contemporary media to accurately communicate the value of the University of Missouri Extension and the College of Agriculture Food and Natural Resources (CAFNR). We do so by supplying news stories and information about MU Extension and CAFNR to print and electronic media. The Cooperative Media Group also assists media outlets in the scheduling and preparation of MU Extension and CAFNR personnel for interviews and as a source of expert analysis and commentary on a wide range of subjects.

We also provide support to produce multimedia presentations for training and learning experiences for MU Extension, CAFNR and other MU departments. These services include media editing, production of animated graphics, and production support for events and activities intended for electronic distribution such as live webcasts and file encoding for Internet distribution.

Please give us a call if you have questions or would like to discuss your multimedia educational needs.
