The primary mission of Lincoln University Cooperative Extension (LUCE) is to enhance the quality of life for diverse, limited resource audiences through supportive research at local, state, regional, national and international levels.


Our programs address the needs of small farmers in twelve 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 essential subject areas that are relevant and positively impact Missouri residents.
