County Extension Council Training-Urban West Region
Full course description
Our distinct land-grant mission is to improve lives, communities, and economies by producing relevant, reliable and responsive educational strategies that enhance access to the resources and research of the University of Missouri. As an integral part of the land-grant mission, University of Missouri Extension is a joint venture of University of Missouri campuses; Lincoln University Cooperative Extension; the people of Missouri through county extension councils; National Institute for Food and Agriculture of the U.S. Department of Agriculture; and other stakeholders and partners.
As a council leader, you play a vital role in meeting these educational needs. Extension councils are statutorily created to work with the University in carrying out the local extension program (Sections 262:550 to 262:620, Revised Statutes of Missouri).
