The primary mission of Lincoln University Cooperative Extension (LUCE) is to enhance the quality of life of diverse, limited-resource audiences in Missouri, through supportive research-based education and engagement at local, state, regional, national and international levels.
Programs address the needs of small farmers throughout the state of Missouri. There are 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. Extension Specialists, located primarily on Lincoln's main campus, facilitate Extension and outreach programs covering essential subject areas that are relevant and positively impact those living in Missouri.
