Welcome to extension.msstate.edu
Welcome to extension.msstate.edu, the new official website of the Mississippi State University Extension Service.
We're pleased to present this new website and hope that you find it a useful source of information.
In order to make this site an effective tool, we appreciate your input and comments. Please, let us know what's working, what's not, and any suggestions you have to improve extension.msstate.edu.
As you can imagine, transitioning such a large site presents certain challenges:
- We ask for your patience as search engines index the site.
- Please, let us know if you find any links that are no longer working or information that is incorrect.
- Remember links that refer to the old msucares.com site will no longer work.
- If you are an Extension employee, and your personnel information is not correct, update your profile on the Extension Intranet site, or contact HR.
- If your Department or Extension Unit's information is not correct, have the Unit Head update that information on the Extension Intranet site.
We will continue to work to improve this site and maintain the tradition of being a resource you can trust.
