Extension and Engagement Week 2023

Join us at Extension & Engagement Week 2023 — Oct. 24–26, 2023

UM Extension and Engagement Week — with events at all four UM System universities — showcases the impact of extension programming and university engagement on addressing our state's grand challenges. We're exploring big questions about the role of the engaged university in our state, society and beyond. This year, the focus is on youth.

Missouri’s youth are our future. The opportunities they have and challenges they face will shape our communities, our state and the world for decades to come. It’s up to today’s leaders and educators to create the conditions needed for today’s youth to thrive.

Join us as we explore how best to equip our youth to become the leaders who will shape the future of agriculture, the economy, education, health and well-being.

Together, we will work to empower this next generation to make a positive mark on our communities, our state and the world.
