The Flagship of the Future
As a comprehensive research university, we are privileged to extend our research, learning, engagement and economic development beyond our campus. Our mission starts here but our impact is global.
Our plan embodies our commitment to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and the larger community. In this commitment is our recognition that while we are the University of Missouri, we are really the University for Missouri.
Students at the University of Missouri are the core of our institution and our future. We are dedicated to their success at MU and beyond.
