State extension council

University of Missouri State Extension Council

The University of Missouri Extension State Council promotes the common interest of county councils through:

  • Support for research and extension programs of MU and Lincoln University at all levels of government, and
  • Dissemination of information on the need for, and advantage of, research and extension

The MU Extension state council includes individuals who currently serve, or have served, on a county extension council and who are elected by regional extension councils.

The state extension council usually meets on the second Friday of each month. Meeting dates can change due to scheduling conflicts, and meeting locations vary.

Council resource toolbox

As you are an elected or appointed council member and dedicated advocate for MU Extension, we want to arm you with the most accurate and timely information possible. We have designed a resource "toolbox" to have at your disposal the educational information, guidelines, by-laws and tools you need to be an advocate for and be informed about extension.

The council resource toolbox is designed to assist council members and officers to best carry out your office duties and serve the constituents that you represent.
