Missouri State University is a public university system with students who come from all over Missouri, the nation and the world. We are a close-knit community of passionate and steadfast learners committed to ethical leadership, cultural competence and community engagement. Those are the pillars of the university’s unique public affairs mission, granted to us by the Missouri General Assembly.
The system has four physical campuses — three in Missouri and one in Dalian, China — and an outreach program for any time, any place learning. We’re committed to cultivating well-rounded citizens who are prepared to lead full, successful lives. Students who come to Missouri State find robust programs across seven academic colleges and the Graduate College. We're classified as a doctoral university.
