Economic and Community Development

Drawing on the University’s land grant mission and role as an anchor institution, Economic and Community Development (ECD) supports the University’s commitment to engage and apply its economic and human capital to drive positive community impact and economic opportunity in North St. Louis County, the St. Louis region, Missouri and beyond.

ECD does this by leading and supporting community-university partnerships and initiatives, strengthening a culture of engagement on campus, building civic capacity for thriving communities, and fostering connections and relationships with the communities we serve.
