The primary mission of Lincoln University Cooperative Extension (LUCE) is to enhance the quality of life for diverse, limited-resource audiences through supportive research-based education and engagement at local, state, regional, national and international levels.
Our programs address the needs of small farmers in 12 counties throughout the state of Missouri. We have regional and area educators in both Urban Impact Centers in Kansas City and St. Louis as well as outreach centers in Sikeston, Lilbourn, and Caruthersville in Southeast Missouri. Our Extension Specialists, located primarily on Lincoln's main campus, facilitate Extension and outreach programs covering relevant, essential subject areas that positively impact Missouri residents.
