The president of the University of Missouri System says MU Extension is an integral part of its institutional offerings.

Dr. Mun Choi visited the Greene County extension office Wednesday. It was one of three stops in Springfield, the first city on Choi’s statewide tour.

“I’m here to visit a very important component of our mission, which is the organization that serves to provide outreach and to use research and education from the university to make an impact on the community,” said Choi.
