University of Missouri

Engagement & Outreach

As a respected leader in higher education and as Missouri’s leading land-grant university, the University of Missouri demonstrates excellence in engagement and outreach through activities and initiatives conducted by colleges, schools, units and as part of the University of Missouri System.

Through discovery and the translation of research into technologies, information, programs and services that contribute to problem-solving and societal enrichment, MU improves lives, communities and economies.

On campus and throughout the state’s 114 counties and metro areas, Missouri’s prosperity, competitive position, and social and cultural richness are enhanced by Mizzou’s ongoing commitment to:

  • Educate and Engage Citizens
  • Strengthen Democratic Values and Responsibility
  • Address Crucial Societal Issues
  • Contribute to the Public Good

At MU, excellence in engagement and outreach is characterized by three primary goals:

  1. Deliver effective extension, engagement and outreach programs that have meaningful impact.
  2. Fulfill MU’s commitment outlined in each of the other compacts within this strategic plan through engagement and outreach.
  3. Increase stakeholders’ awareness and support of extension, engagement and outreach efforts, and increase Missourians’ access to and participation in programs that benefit their communities.
