For all MU Extension faculty, administration and professional staff, UMEA is dedicated to promoting fellowship and the general welfare of our members through opportunities for professional improvement and the recognition of achievement and leadership.
Historically, MU Extension has been about delivering applied knowledge to the citizens. Today, the University of Missouri is renewing that active partnership between the university and the community to identify and explore the critical problems and challenges facing Missourians. Through engaged teaching, research, applied knowledge, practices and key partnerships, we create shared solutions. Student engagement, public service and outreach are part of these opportunities.
