SpeakerExtension council members and other colleagues:

University of Missouri Extension invites you to attend the Council to Campus event June 20 and 21 on the university campus. For the past nine years, this event has connected county council members with the research and program development of the University of Missouri’s flagship campus. For 175 years, the university has been a leader in research, teaching and extension. This year marks the 100-year anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act and MU Extension’s long history of working toward a better future for all Missourians.

This event is an opportunity for the University of Missouri, MU Extension and the county extension councils to forge new partnerships. We hope county and regional council members will take this opportunity to learn more about what we do and how we work to implement extension programs across the state.

We have worked to provide programs that ensure research conducted by our faculty and staff continues to address your community’s needs on a local level. At this year’s event, you will get a closer look at the research and programs conducted on campus.

As we look back on our accomplishments of the past century of extension, join us to learn more about what we can achieve in the next 100 years. We will discuss a broad array of issues facing extension across the state, such as regional realignment, staff planning, local program presence, the role played by regional councils, and how to support local programming and grow a local presence.

Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin will deliver the keynote address at the Friday dinner, wherein he will share his views on the roles of the university and MU Extension.

Our luncheon speaker will be Joy Millard, interim assistant vice provost of administration for MU Extension. She will discuss extension’s past successes, present initiatives and plans for the future.

Michael Ouart, vice provost and director of extension, and other administrative team leaders will be available to discuss the goals and visions of MU Extension. There will be time set aside for pictures and to meet council members from across the state. We will provide a press release so you can share news of the event with local media in your county.

We look forward to seeing you at the Council to Campus event in June to give you a closer look at MU Extension’s work to improve the lives of Missourians across the state. Electronic registration for this event is available through Extension Regional Directors or on this website.
