  • Important update related to COVID-19

    • As Missouri COVID-19 restrictions ease, MU Extension is resuming some face-to-face operations. Faculty and staff are delivering programs and services in our community while striving to follow CDC guidelines to keep you and ourselves safe. Please follow any guidance posted on this page or at our office. In the meantime, many events will continue to be delivered online and our list of public COVID-19 resources continues to grow to address your needs.

We bring Mizzou to you.

Through a network of county offices, the University of Missouri solves problems and engages with communities across all 114 counties and the City of St. Louis.

MU faculty, staff and elected council members, who live in your community, work with you to identify local interests and issues and then offer relevant programming and resources to meet the unique needs of you and your community.

Our job is to partner with communities to find solutions with credible, science-based information that will help you:

  • Grow safe and healthy food
  • Build and grow profitable businesses
  • Improve your health and relationships
  • Increase agricultural production
  • Update professional training in business, health and safety
  • Engage youth as valued, contributing citizens
