Ozark County's community classroom

MU Extension is the University of Missouri’s classroom in Ozark County. We connect people to research-based education to enrich the quality of life and enhance the economic well-being of our communities.

MU Extension partners with the Ozark County Commission and other local organizations to provide education, information and services that meet people's needs. The elected and appointed members of the Ozark County extension council provide guidance in identifying those needs to ensure that our educational programs are relevant, reliable and responsive.

Whether it's resources for yourself or your family, farm, business or community, we invite you to explore our website, call or email to learn how we can help you.
