The MU Extension Way Standards

MU Extension Way is a set of standards — Educate, Create, Connect and Support — that shapes our work and its value and impact. Together with related principles and practices, these standards guide how we bring the university’s knowledge and expertise to the people and communities of Missouri. A common framework of systems, structures and resources supports our faculty and staff as we strive to create an expectation and culture of trust, open communication and high-quality performance.

MU Extension Way commits us to being responsive, respectful and engaged partners as we work together to identify and seek solutions to Missouri’s health, education and economic development needs.
