Martinez_OuartA Welcome Message from Dr. Michael Ouart, Vice Provost and Director of MU Extension-

Welcome to Alianzas, a program of University of Missouri Extension and the UMKC Institute for Human Development. Alianzas was created in 2001 in response to the rapidly increasing Latino population in Missouri and the rising need for inclusive MU Extension programming. More than ever, this is to be achieved through the implementation of outreach programs that use a community-based, collaborative learning approach. Alianzas assists Extension faculty and staff in their work with diverse communities by building understanding on how evolving demographics offer not only challenges, but also opportunities. I invite all MU Extension educators and our partners to use the tools, data and training Alianzas offers to learn strategies that will help us effectively serve and partner with Latino residents.
