Accelerating Discoveries 

Cancer, sustainability, addiction, democracy, health disparities, and so much more. The challenges we tackle in the College of Arts and Science are nothing short of fundamental to our health, safety, and well-being. This work will touch all of our lives in some capacity. The University of Missouri’s mission as a land-grant institution uniquely positions us to meet these grand challenges with an equally grand response, in service of the people of Missouri and beyond. With your help we will be able to think big, to answer these questions, find solutions, and serve the public good.


Connecting Education to Career

Explorers don’t always know what they will find, or where their path may lead them. The College of Arts and Science partners with students along the way as guides, helping them to understand how to use their experiences and education to design their lives and pursue careers in an often unpredictable and ever-changing world. Your support means that on graduation day, Arts and Science students won’t just walk away with a career path. They won’t just walk away with knowledge and skills. They will walk toward their lives.


Cultivating Creativity

Creativity is the challenge for the workforce of the future, and the College of Arts and Science is prepared to help our students rise to that challenge. Your support of this innovative, multi-disciplinary approach to the inclusion of creativity in the everyday learning of students throughout the Mizzou community uniquely positions MU students to keep pace in an ever-evolving world and workplace.
