The Connector supports several programming opportunities to engage with the local community and the state of Missouri as a whole.

Through these programs, we work to build and enhance outreach and engagement opportunities for faculty and students across the university.

Our programs provide the space for MU researchers to connect with the public through teaching and informal speaking events.

EXTRA CREDIT

Extra Credit is a once-a-month movie series featuring a panel of MU researchers who expand on some aspect of a movie relation to their research and creative activities. This event also features a Q&A with the audience and is a collaboration between The Connector and Ragtag Cinema.

The Columbia Young Scientists (CYS) Fair and Expo is an annual event at the University of Missouri that promotes STEM for people of all ages.
