MU Extension brochure

Need a general brochure that quickly and easily explains who we are and how we can help Missourians? Publication UED1120 (PDF) does just that.

Created using colorful images, beloved Truman the Tiger and targeted language to attract a general population, this is a great educational piece for those who don’t understand the breadth of extension’s services.

Send an email and include the following information:

  • Pub number and quantity requested

Available tabletop displays

Are you hosting an upcoming event for researchers, state or regional council members, legislators, or other constituents? If so, you need to reserve one of our new tabletop displays.

This display speaks directly to researchers and communicates the opportunities MU Extension has to collaborate with them on getting their research to the people of Missouri.

This display is designed to be used at events where constituents, such as donors, legislators and council members are in attendance. It communicates how MU Extension affects lives, businesses and communities across the state with specific examples of successes and available programming.

The three-panel displays measure 64” wide x 32” high and will fit perfectly on a 6-foot or an 8-foot table. Each display weighs 19 pounds and can be set up in just minutes. Each display has a handle and a shoulder strap for convenient transport.

Due to the weight, the display cannot be shipped so it must be picked up in Columbia. Contact Laura Lindsey at to reserve.


Telling our story one photo at a time

Have you heard about MUEXT101?

Our social media campaign called MU Extension 101 attempts to expand our online audience by showing the diverse ways we affect people’s lives. Every Monday and Thursday, a new picture will be posted on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Visit to see the previous posts.

Your help can ensure the success of this campaign:

  1. Help spread the message by sharing, retweeting, pinning and liking the posts on the extension accounts on your personal pages and on your county social media accounts.
  2. If you have an engaging picture that helps tell the extension story (and you have the proper photo release signed), please send it to along with a brief description and how the picture connects to an extension program, service or publication. Photos should be high-resolution.
