About the Office of Engagement and Outreach

Engagement is the extension of knowledge, offerings, and influence of the 九色视频 in communities for the betterment of people. This includes learning opportunities that lead to behavior change, research that leads to improvement in the quality of life of citizens, donor investment in research, teaching and communities, and partners who serve as champions to advance the mission of the UM System. Engagement is wide-ranging.

At the heart of engagement is the relationship and connectivity between citizens and higher education. This is based on a university presence with people in communities that is relevant, timely, and grounded. As a result of this relationship, engagement can serve to identify local and state needs and therefore inform teaching, research and philanthropy goals.

The Office of Engagement and Outreach works to support the Missouri Compacts for Excellence, and, like its name suggests, has a particular focus of furthering the Compact for Excellence in Engagement and Outreach:
