Empowering Leadership and Success

The work done by extension specialists requires support from university and extension and engagement peers, staff and leadership. Through human resources, finance, communications and constituent relations, we collaborate and support each other to help solve Missouri's grand challenges. We provide systems, structures and resources that ensure accountability, timely training and effective coaching. This gives specialists flexibility and responsibility in designing plans of work that are most relevant to local learners and their needs.

These simple principles guide our work to support:

  • person receiving award icon
  • Value people

  • fist with lightning bolts
  • Empower and accelerate success

  • hand holding scales
  • Ethically steward resources
