County extension council members and MU Extension faculty act as educational brokers, putting the interests and concerns of local people together with the resources of the land-grant university so people can obtain their goals. Throughout Missouri, extension councils and MU Extension professionals have identified an array of issues and have found ways University facilities and people can help.
Because extension councils, through federal and state laws, have a legal foundation for operation and a working partnership with MU Extension, the variety and scope of educational programs are nearly unlimited.
University of Missouri Extension offers educational programs in categories such as agriculture, home economics, business and industry, community development, youth development (4-H) and various continuing education courses, seminars and workshops.
Information or literature about University of Missouri Extension programs are available at the Morgan/Moniteau County MU Extension office located on the fourth floor of the Morgan County courthouse (100 E. Newton St. 4th floor, Versailles) and phone # 573-378-5358. University of Missouri Extension programs are open to all.
