  • Gain and apply a working understanding of continuing education accreditation rules
  • Gain and apply a thorough understanding of University branding/identity guidelines.
  • Work across HOPE units as needed, while also identifying opportunities for strategic collaboration.
  • Perform related duties as assigned.

Conduct all activities in accordance with the Civil Rights Acts, Title IX, Rehabilitation, Americans with Disabilities Act and local, state and region affirmative action plans.

As with all positions, involvement with other duties and responsibilities may be expected to support the mission and purpose of MU Extension.

Exhibit a high personal standard of excellence, be an effective team player, and demonstrate inclusivity, civility, and respect for all.

Engage stakeholders and learners; maintain positive interpersonal relationships; and exhibit effective written and oral communication skills.

Operate with minimal guidance and be a self-directed learner who is flexible and adaptable to changing environments.
