  • About the School:
  • Missouri State University is a statewide university system with a mission in public affairs, whose purpose is to develop educated persons. It is committed to achieving five major goals: 1) democratizing society, 2) incubating new ideas, 3) imagining Missouris future, 4) making Missouris future, and 5) modeling ethical and effective behavior as a public institution.

    The Universitys identity is distinguished by its statewide mission in public affairs, requiring a campus-wide commitment to foster competence and responsibility in the common vocation of citizenship.

    The academic experience is grounded in a general education curriculum which draws heavily from the liberal arts and sciences. This foundation provides the basis for mastery of disciplinary and professional studies. It also provides essential forums in which students develop the capacity to make well-informed, independent critical judgements about the cultures, values and institutions in society.

    The task of developing educated persons obligates the University to expand the store of human understanding through research, scholarship and creative endeavor, and drawing from that store of understanding, to provide service to the communities that support it. In all of its programs, the University uses the most effective methods of discovering and imparting knowledge and the appropriate use of technology in support of these activities.

    The University functions through a multi-campus system that is integrated to address the needs of its constituents.
