Each community in Mississippi makes a distinct contribution to the state’s unique social fabric and strength. Whether joined by a common location or a common interest, communities are made up of people interested in living well. The MSU Extension Service provides practical, research-based information for Mississippians in all types of communities to help them solve problems, develop skills, and build a better future. From preparing and responding to disasters to educating community leaders about economic development opportunities, Extension specialists and agents are engaged in building stronger communities throughout the state.
