Cooperative Extension and Research title

Our Cooperative Extension department provides research-based educational outreach programs to Missouri's hard to reach populations. Our main office is on the campus of Lincoln University, in Jefferson City, and our outreach centers are located in Kansas City, St. Louis and Southeast Missouri.

Our Cooperative Research Department conducts a variety of research programs concentrating on essential subject areas which are relevant to Missouri residents and which support research for both immediate and future applications.

Individual departments conduct various subject-related research projects to discover new ways to apply knowledge, principles and methodologies.
