Our publications team works with you to produce informative and effective research-based print and electronic publications. From brief guides to comprehensive curricula that can include presentation materials, we can help you get your points across clearly and concisely to reach your identified audiences. We can also help develop marketing materials to promote your publication.

News and media relations

Our news team works with extension staff and faculty to develop and distribute — to print, broadcast and online media — dozens of news stories each year. We also direct reporters to extension experts and advise faculty and staff on how to work with the media.

Web development and communications training

Our web team designs and supports the MU Extension website, which covers services throughout the state and has about 20,000 unique visitors a day; leads extension’s social media efforts; and advises you on best practices. We also manage extension’s innumerable digital assets and conduct communications training.

Video and audio production

Our video and audio production team produces educational and promotional media. We work with you from the beginning: to refine your concept; record your message, in studio or on location; edit the piece; and help you distribute the finished product. We are also available to record presentations, and we have a state-of-the-art recording studio where you can record your own podcasts.

Marketing and constituent relations

Our marketing staff helps you promote and protect the MU Extension brand and works to increase the value of the brand. We also produce a variety of communications that express MU Extension’s value to stakeholders such as council members, legislators and Missourians.

Internal communications

Our writers and editors keep you in the know with the bimonthly MU Extension Insider newsletter, and our web team maintains a robust and dynamic website filled with vital information for faculty and staff.

Publications distribution

Our distribution center manages an inventory of almost 2,400 unique items, including publications and promotional items, and distributes more than 2.5 million items a year. We also coordinate special mailings, create employee and council member nametags, and recognize more than 200 Missouri Century Farms each year.
