East Central Region

East Central region counties pulled out of state of Missouri.

The MU Extension East Central Region includes 17 counties from Central Missouri, to the St. Louis area. Agricultural businesses, Tourism, State Government, Higher Education and Department of Defense all have significant representation and provide a diverse economic mix for the area economy. The East Central Region includes counties adjacent to both I-70 and I-44.

The diversity of MU Extension work reflects economic mix. We support the people of this region by providing practical education to support informed choices in:

  • Business Development
  • Agriculture
  • Youth leadership development
  • Nutrition and Health

We invite you to explore MU Extension, and participate in some of the learning opportunities available to the people of our region, the state of Missouri, and globally via online learning.


Please visit the county pages for county-specific faculty and staff, events, courses and more.
